Turzum, Organic Darjeeling Black Tea, First Flush 2021

2 reviews

An excellent first flush organic Darjeeling tea from Turzum tea estate, with all the bright, refreshing spring flavors.

LEAF: The chinary leaves are short and wiry and moderately tippy. Lovely grassy and wild flowers aroma emanate from the bag.

WET LEAF: The leaves open up to a deep green with brown streaks. You can see a good presence of buds here. The nose is deep and sweet with notes of wildflowers and peach. 

CUP: The liquor is pale amber with a good aroma that recalls flowers and sweet ripe peach. There are bight flavors that recall peach and citrus. The body is light but with a brisk quality that leaves that palate clean and refreshed. Delicious!

2021 Himalayan/ Darjeeling's will be year we wont forget

I was blown away by Jun C. I assumed that Turzum and Puttabong have to compete for 2nd and 3rd place. I cant remember a year when all these estates were so exceptional. Jun C is an am tea. I am sipping my 1st cup 15 minutes after I get out of bed. Its like lying on a bed of jasmine with a cover of jasmine flowers. Turzum starts of singing of spring and then says "buck up" back to work. A good pm tea to recharge the brain for the late afternoon meeting. Puttabong is a like a dancing fairy, just full of joy. A good cup to relax and enjoy when there is no work that day. I cant improve on Niraj's more literal descriptions. 2021 maybe a year where we hoard the teas to drink in 2022. I have to book my tea supply for the year and beyond. Its like the earth spirits are saying, we know you had a hard year, and drinking tea and having tea parties is what you can do. So we will wow you. Sungma you are next.

Happy Earth Tea

Many gifts from the Himalaya this year Ruhi. Keep exploring and let us know your thoughts!
