Darjeeling 2nd Flush, Singell Estate Heritage 45
The Singell Estate was established in 1871, and celebrates its 150th anniversary with a stellar production from its heritage field section: this lot (DJ-45) was hand-picked from the original tea plants in the garden.
Darjeeling teas are heralded for their bright mouthfeel and complex fragrances, and this harvest is a prime example. From the toasted dark cocoa aroma off the dry leaf, to refreshing notes of citrus, wood and wintergreen after infusing, these saddle-brown leaves offer sensory delight even before sipping the radiant copper liquor. The rich, balanced flavor is both savory and toasty—think a freshly baked loaf of bread—and surprisingly sweet. If you’ve never tried a Darjeeling 2nd Flush before, this historic black tea is one not to miss.
