Elephant Tea

The newest craze in high dollar tea is Elephant Tea it's high grown mountain Darjeeling First Flush that is passed through an elephants trunk. This process allows enzymes in the elephant saliva to begin a slight fermentation process that brings out very complex floral notes as well as an earthy balance that some are saying make this the best tasting April Fools Day joke around... Happy April Fools Day!!


  1. I live in Darjeeling and am actively involved in Tea Production since 1980. New thing that I am hearing but seems a very difficult thing to do. Which estate is doing this?

    1. It was a joke, in America April 1st is April Fools Day... It's a day for jokes and fun. I am however interested in knowing about what you do there.
