Strawberries are one of summer's classic flavors. As eminently edible as they are great for the body, in addition to a juicy berry character, strawberries offer a dose of antioxidants. What's more, thanks to their low-glycemic status they make a tasty option for those mindful of their glucose levels. In this case, we've blended real, small-batch dried strawberry pieces with another quintessential classic, Darjeeling black tea. Together, these titans of flavor offer a whimsical and fruit-forward take on the daily cuppa. Experience the best of both worlds.What makes Darjeeling teas so special?To answer this question, we travel back to 1841 when a Chinese variety of tea, Camellia sinensis var. sinensis, was first planted in Darjeeling. This varietal, characterized by smaller leaves and unique genetics, thrives in the Darjeeling terroir producing light, flavorful teas with a unique muscatel character that is not possible in other black teas, and more layered and complex nuance than many green teas. Thanks to the high growing altitude, they're also abundant in antioxidants which scientific studies are reviewing for their benefits in combating various human ailments.As of 2004, the term "Darjeeling Tea" serves as a registered geographical indication. This means that only teas grown and manufactured in the region may use the name "Darjeeling", much the same way that true Champagne must come from France's Champagne region.
