For those of you unfamiliar with this Darjeeling tea garden it is the reincarnation of Vah Takvar, an old garden that had gone defunct in the 1990s. It has been revived and has in recent years been making some wonderful teas. We are excited to be presenting our first Shree Dwarika to you!

Water temp: near boil, 190-200F
