Darjeeling Okayti 2nd flush. Imperial Musk Organic
A premium muscatel Darjeeling from the lush and widespread plantations of Okayti in Darjeeling. This organic summer tea is deliciously bodied and energizes your taste buds from the first sip. Discover lychee like sweetness of muscatel grapes and a smooth body all throughout the experience. The rounded amberish liquor makes for a smooth rich mouthfeel with bold notes of caramel and cocoa on the sideline. A vintage like summer Darjeeling which will mature with time. An excellent limited edition black tea.
The estate employs 1000 permanent staff. All staff and dependants, totalling around 4000 people live on the estate, living almost entirely self sufficient lives. There are schools, hospitals, shops and markets located on the estate. Okayti
also boasts the oldest tea processing factory in Darjeeling, established in 1888, alongside one of the newest, established in 2004. The estate covers a total of 600 hectares, of which 550 acres are under plantation.
Okayti was originally known as Rangdoo Estate. The name Okayti orginates from the time when the most renowned tea gardens in India would send samples of their teas to Queen Victoria for first refusal. For a number of years, the Queen tasted tea from Rangdoo Estate and “gave it the ok”, indicating that she wanted to buy it. So Rangdoo Estate became known as the estate with the “OK Tea”. Now locals pronounce the name of the estate as “O kai tee”.
