Jungpana China FTGFOP1

Jungpana is located in a rather narrow crest in the Himalayas. Hidden from the general view - a road is actually still to connect this tea garden - this garden is recognized for its high quality tea. Many high end stores like Harrods  and Mariage (France) purvey Jungpana tea.

We have the pleasure of introducing this tea for our customers for the first time this first flush.

Jungpana first flush leaves

DRY TEA: The leaves are generally small and wiry - indicative of its tenderness  when plucked - with a good amount of tips.  The colors are largely black/gray with a good amount of green leaf spread. It has a fresh green sweet and vegetal fragrance.

INFUSION: The leaves turn pale and lime green with shots of brown.The nose has a rich fragrance of minty, lemonycharacter combined with floral notes recalling jasmine.

CUP: The liqor is beautiful golden hue and has a nice body. The complex sweet-floral flavor feels good all over the mouth. Simply delicious, in plain English. The tea is brisk, well rounded and has a lovely aftertaste that lingers long after the cup is done. This tea is a good example of a perfect Darjeeling first flush.jungpana first flush cup

BREWING TIME: Not more than 3 mins

OCCASION: A great after-dinner tea.

"Strolling through a pine forest or bamboo grove, viewing the rock formations, arrangement of plants, and cascading waterfalls, pausing to ponder the quiet surface of the lake and the shoreline - little by little we are encouraged to lay aside the chaos of a troubled world and gently nurture the capacity within to hear a more harmonious, universal rhythm…This is the tremendous power the Japanese gardens at Morikami Park hold for us." - Hoichi Kurisu, Master Garden Designer of Roji-en.

After nine years of residing in Rochester, I finally crossed over to the other side of Ontario Lake, to get to the Canadian city of Toronto - thanks to its annual tea festival. For the efforts - which included an early rise and a hangover from the polar vortex of the century - we were richly rewarded. Our day trip was filled with many cups of warm wonderful teas, encounters with equally warm tea enthusiasts, and topped off by a documentary on Darjeeling tea!
