This is one of the most stunningly delicious teas I have ever had. While not officially a darjeeling (Champagne vs. sparkling wine), it is equal to if not above, the quality level of anything the Darjeeling region has to offer. Plus, the plantation is working toward it organic certification, so one can feel really good about consuming this tea. It is truly a cup of heaven for me each afternoon!
