Harrods Organic Darjeeling Loose Leaf Tea

Harrods Darjeeling.jpg This is a simply brilliant (and cheap...) organic second flush Darjeeling that comes from the Fairtrade estates. It makes a quite delicious brew that is suitable for any hour of the day (save night perhaps...). The idea of organic for tea makes a lot of sense. Indeed, if you consider that tea is an infusion of dried leaves, then the idea of having leaves that are not chemically treated and hence don't leave any chemicals in your boiled water makes it almost seem obligatory. I imagine that as time goes on, at least at the premium level, all teas will become organic even if it means reduced yields. But then again, maybe this is just hopeful thinking.

Anyhow, if you are in London, it's definitely worth dropping by Harrods to get this tea. It's a great everyday day tea at a great price (5.95 £ for 125g). You can also buy it online here.
