A lightly oxidized first flush Darjeeling tea from the famed Arya Tea Estate (Organic). Despite the disruptions due to pandemic, the garden managed to produce a limited amount of first flush teas. We were luckily offered a batch at the end of the season, which we are happy to bring to our customers.
This tea comes with soft notes of green mangoes, citrus and melons.
DRY LEAF: Long well-rolled dark green leaves with notes of mums, pepper and bread. The leaves look darker than a typical first flush, promising a slightly more fuller body.
WET LEAF: The leaves unfurl to an olive green and brown yielding notes of peach and sugar.
CUP: Amber liquor with peach, honey and earthy flavors. Well balanced cup, slightly brisk and a sweet finish.
1 tbsp or 3 gm per 8 oz cup
