NudodarjeelingNudo is a very unique company. Located in India, they take deserted tea gardens and restore them to be sustainable through an adoption program. This provides more jobs to the locals and allows the art of tea to continue to be passed down. By adopting a tea garden, you are supporting the growth of the farmers as well as the tea leaves themselves. Subscribers pay for $29 per flush of all four seasons of Darjeeling tea from their specific farm. By adopting a farm, you can learn more about it and support the production of tea and enjoy it directly from the source, guaranteeing you a fresh crop with no middle man.

I received a sample of Nudo's Darjeeling Golden Harvest. No information on which garden this came from was given though. The leaves are broken with light brown and green colors. The scent of the leaves themselves is very earthy with a slight muscatel scent that is common to Darjeeling but not as prominant as most.

I brewed using one large teaspoon at 195° for three minutes. The flavor is as it smells, earthy and malty with a slight muscatel fruitiness to it. A bit dry for my liking, but still a decent cup if you're looking to try a simple Darjeeling tea.
