Brewing happiness one cup at a time.

Arya Diamond, Darjeeling First Flush 2019 (Organic)

1 review

This spring we are happy to have some of your favorites back - Arya Diamond returns, just like our Himalayan White, with a cup full of spring magic! Diamond, from the boutique and certified organic Arya tea estate, this year has a more "greenish" character compared to the 2017 crop which we last had. In the cup it means it is more typical of a traditional Darjeeling first flush - light and bright. But the proven skills Arya's tea makers takes this tea beyond typical, infusing it with layers of very satisfying complexity.  

DRY LEAF: Gorgeous long wiry leaves of AV2 cultivar (an Assam-Darjeeling clonal), full of tips or buds, light green and gray with sweet floral and grassy notes.

INFUSED LEAF: Unfurls to olive green with aroma of peach and freshly cut grass.   

CUP:  Notes of peach, citrus and spring honey rise from the pale amber infusion with delicate fruity-floral flavors on the palate. The finish is clean and sublime.

2019 Arya Diamond

I drank my 1st cup from the Arya estate 15 or more years ago. It was the most wonderful way to start my mornings, even on the coldest Rochester day. The 2019 Arya is going to be my must have teas this year. I bought a large amount after my 1st cup and before it was even on the website. This year I can enjoy the Nepali Himalayan spring in the am and the Arya for my afternoon cup. It looks like a good year for Darjeeling tea. Cant wait to try the 2 new Darjeeling estates arriving any day. 4 estates to delight in will make 2019 a year to remember. Looks like Niraj has hit a boundary (4 runs) in cricket lingo, like an American home run.
