Darjeeling

Type:

Our Darjeeling is a 2nd flush from the Singbulli Estate.  This Organic estate is located in Mirik town, an area now defining itself as the Muscatel Valley.  The garden lies at an elevation of 400-1350 meters. This high elevation helps to create well -defined or clear notes in the tea. We selected this lot as it offers lively taste characteristics.  The initial notes are smooth and flowery, passing into a more pungent feel on the tongue.  There is a well-crafted tension between leaf astringency and "muscatel" flavors.  Note how it will linger.  The leaves cup to a rich, yellow-golden color.    Lot # 240

  1. A great all around black tea. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jul 2015

    This is a pleasing tea. I like it with a bit of honey (Locally sourced from here in Arizona). If you like iced tea this is also a great choice.
