Darjeeling tea is a black tea grown at the foot of the Himalayas, in the Darjeeling region of northern India. The UK Tea Council refers to Darjeeling as the "Champagne of Teas," in honor of its exquisite flavor. Black, green and white teas are all made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, and have been shown to fight cancer, cavities and obesity. Darjeeling may have the additional benefit of protection against stomach ulcers.
