Puttabong, Darjeeling First Flush 2018 (Organic)

Weight

DESCRIPTION

An early harvest (DJ4) first flush 2018 tea using top quality Darjeeling clonals with a complex fruity character and a sweet finish.

DRY LEAF: Made up of a clonal blend*, the long wiry well-rolled leaves wrap you in a notes of sweet bread, green apples and pepper. The leaves are well picked, revealed by the abundant presence of silvery buds.

INFUSION: The supple leaves yield a strong peach and gardenia fragrance. 

CUP: Light golden liquor with a very pleasant aroma of peach and green apples that precede mango and  - surprise! suprise!  - muscatel notes. The latter is not very obvious but there is enough hint of it to give the cup a wonderful depth. Normally, muscatel notes are more found only in a second flush (summer) harvest and rarely in a first flush tea. The sweet aftertaste lingers leaving you with a smile.
