Arya Ruby, Organic Darjeeling Black Tea - Second Flush 2020
Despite disruptions due to the global pandemic we were able to secure a great batch of Arya Ruby - a gorgeous organic second flush black tea. Ruby has always been a popular tea with our Darjeeling fans and we are glad to bring it back. This tea lives up to its excellent reputation and will not disappoint.
An exceptional Darjeeling second flush (summer) tea from the highly regarded Arya Tea Estate. The flavors in this organic Darjeeling tea are in perfect balance and the satisfying aftertaste lingers long after the cup is over. If you are looking for that famed Darjeeling "muscatel" flavor, Ruby delivers.
DRY LEAF: Long and wiry with golden tips, the dry leaf has aromas of chocolate, almond and white pepper.
WET LEAF: The AV2* leaves explode giving off a nose of rose, almond, and cacao.
CUP: Well rounded with notes of apricots, plum and almonds. A lingering sweetness in the aftertaste is delightful.
Fans of Oriental Beauty will love this tea!
*A large leaf cultivar grown in Darjeeling that produces a fragrant cup with ample body.
