Darjeeling tea is one of the most sought-after black teas, originating in the Darjeeling region of West Bengal. It is produced in India from 1400 meters to 2000 meters of altitude. It is nicknamed the "Champagne of tea". It is very tasty, we find a note of muscatel. This characteristic aroma of Darjeeling tea is explained by the presence of an insect called the green leafhopper that eats the leaves of tea plants, causing a biochemical reaction that gives, during the oxidation of tea, characteristic aromas. It is also slightly floral, woody and subtly spicy.
Grand Yunnan is produced in southwestern China, in the region that bears its name at an altitude of 2000 meters. Yunnan is considered the world's cradle of tea thanks to its warm and humid climate. Its taste is very pronounced with aromas of waxed wood, honey and some animal notes.
