Similarly, when it comes to tea, nothing is more revitalizing than a cup of a freshly brewed Darjeeling tea. Superior in taste and quality, Darjeeling tea is exported from tea estates to the rest of the world.

The quality of tea is judged by its aroma, size of the tea leaf, appearance, and colour. Happy Valley Darjeeling tea is regarded as one of the finest tea that is produced and exported out of India.

Brewing a cup of tea may seem like a simple task, but if you wish to enjoy the real taste of Darjeeling tea, here are the steps you should follow to get it right –

Boil the Water

For starters always use fresh and room temperature water to prepare Darjeeling tea.


The temperature of the water depends upon the kind of tea you plan on using. For example, for black tea, you’ll need water at 190-210o f. For delicate green tea, 170- 180o f works great.

Quantity of Tea

A well-brewed tea also depends upon the amount of tea used in brewing. For a single cup of tea, use at least two teaspoons of tea leaves.

Dunk Time

On an Average, you should infuse the tea leaves in the water for at least 1-2 minutes. However, this again depends on the type of tea you are using. For example, for oolong or White Darjeeling tea, infuse the tea leaves for a longer period.

Step 5 Strain

To keep things simple and not messy, buy a loose tea infuser. With the help of this kitchen tool, you can just add the tea leaves and infuse it in hot water.

Serve a cup of freshly brewed tea with pound cake, tart or butter cookies.

Given the many benefits of Darjeeling tea, it is time to brew it right!
