Darjeeling 2nd Flush, Namring Upper Estate
The Namring Upper Estate is located in northern India’s Teesta Valley; in operation since 1855, it is one of the oldest tea estates in the Darjeeling region. This lot (EX 135) hails from the traditional china bush variety, and boasts aromas of strawberry jam and toast atop a bright, crisp flavor.
Second flush teas are the second harvest of the year, usually in May; the leaves are hand-plucked and processed to allow full oxidation. Darjeelings are a medium-bodied but complex style of black tea, with refreshing astringency. To fully savor the nuances, brew with water at a full boil, and with less leaf than other black teas.
