Bright Amber
Taste
With a legacy dating back to 1854, Happy Valley stands tall as one of the oldest in Darjeeling, a testament to the enduring art of tea craftsmanship.

This medium-bodied, summer tea greets you with a captivating sweet tonality that remains ever-present throughout the entire journey of each sip. As you take your first sip, you'll be enveloped in the enchanting embrace of delectable fruity accents reminiscent of juicy nectarines.

These luscious notes dance gracefully on your palate, intertwining with the gentler essence of muskmelon, creating a uniquely textured liquor that delights the senses. Amidst the exquisite medley of flavors, subtle hints of light woodiness emerge, which gracefully give way, paving the path to a grand finale.

The closing notes reveal a delightful play of tart-fruity flavors akin to ripe red berries, leaving a lasting impression on the palate.

This tea is so fresh and the packaging is fantastic. This is my second order and I will be ordering again. I don't think I'll ever buy any other tea again.
