From Percival Boyd's Teas of Origin

A delicately flavored black tea from the classic Silbung estate in northeastern India, Selimbong Organic Darjeeling is plucked from plants growing at an elevation of more than 5,100 feet. Farmed under organic practices sine 1994, leaves from this estate have justly earned the award of quality from the tea Board of India. Shortly after the British in 1836 introduced the agriculture of tea to India, the Silbung estate was dedicated and stocked with the Assam and China tea varieties. Its exceptional tea leaves have lured selective tea drinkers since 1866.

The oolong and matcha alone weren’t cutting it. By the afternoon, I needed something to keep me sustained. I hit the coffee shop next door – aptly dubbed Boyd’s Coffee. I’ve had their Darjeeling before, liked it, but never afforded it any detailed scrutiny. I can definitely say it’s among the good Darjeelings I’ve tried. It had the spicy-floral characteristics I remembered from another Selimbong offering I tasted. The best part was the bitterness, believe it or not. The one trait I usually can’t stand in black teas actually worked well here – adding a sort of pick-me-up. Quite nice for early afternoon.
