Smooth, delicate, elegant
From beneath the midsummer moon
The ultimate Darjeeling

The secret of a record-breaking tea

Royal Darjeeling Rajah Premium   is made using Silver Needles, the highest grade of black tea available at the historic Makaibari Tea Estate in Darjeeling, India. These exquisite leaves, named for their delicate silver hairs, are grown on a special plantation using biodynamic farming techniques and harvested just once a year under the full moon. The leaves are then delicately hand rolled by skilled artisans. From cultivation through to processing, every aspect of this tea’s production is carried out with the utmost emphasis on quality.

In July 2003, at a tea auction in Calcutta, a batch of Silver Needles was sold for the highest price ever recorded in the 150-year history of Darjeeling tea. This record has yet to be broken.

A refined and enriching experience

After taking in the deep, sparkling colour of this refined and luxurious tea, we invite you allow its smooth, elegant taste and delicate, floral bouquet to unfurl within your mouth and up into your nostrils, leaving behind a gentle, lingering afternote.
