Darjeeling TGFOP1 Castleton Black Tea Explained
Darjeeling TGFOP1 Castleton is a black tea from the Darjeeling District in the Himalayan Foothills of West Bengal, India.
Castleton is grown in the South Kurseong Valley at an altitude of 4500 feet above sea level and is renowned for producing exceptional teas.
The Tea Garden was originally planted in 1885 by Dr. Charles Graham. Its teas would consistently reach record high prices at tea auctions around the world.
The name ‘Castleton’ was inspired by an old building on the tea estate called “Bank Ghar” which looked like a castle.
It was from this, the tea garden became known as Castleton.
Castleton teas are produced from pure Chinese tea bushes. With Darjeeling teas known as the ‘champagne of teas’, Castleton is no exception.
In terms of appearance, Darjeeling Castleton presents a dark coloured leaf with silvery tips.
The clear noticeability of silver tips highlights the careful plucking procedure carried out by the tea pickers of Castleton.
Enjoy an aromatic, delicate and exquisite taste which is rounded off with a soft and mild flowery bouquet.
A must have for every Darjeeling tea assortment.
