This is the first of our Darjeeling First Flush 2017, and it is from the famous Arya tea estate. This is not a typical spring Darjeeling, but is still a highly regarded tea for its own signature flavor.
DRY TEA: Gorgeous tippy long leaves of green and grey hues exude a sweet breath of grassy and fruity notes.
INFUSION: Leaves unfold to plump freshness with a floral-fruity nose laced with a sugary sweetness.
CUP: A pale amber that belies the profusion of bright flavors. A complex but very pleasing aroma of fruity and floral character that rests on a spring honey body. The flavors are well-rounded and in perfect balance with no astringency. It has a bit more body and a fruitier character than a typical Darjeeling first flush.
Use 1 tbsp (2.5 gm) for 12 oz cup
Water temp: 200 F
Steeping time: 3-5 mins
