Darjeeling 2nd Flush, Singell Estate Heritage 45

$30.00 $40.00
| /

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.

wonderful

This tea had been of interest for a long time, but I had passed it by for the non "Heritage" 2nd flush Darjeeling, assuming that you couldn't get much better than that fine tea. Coming onto the website after a while away (I had unfortunately unsubscribed from the newsfeed emails) and found that my regular 2nd flush was Sold Out and this one was on sale. I tried to buy 2 packets and found I could only get one. Well, this tea is truly wonderful and I would buy it again whenever it comes back in stock. Rich, satisfying and perfect for me, a 2nd flush Darjeeling lover.

Really delicious Darjeeling

I really enjoy this Darjeeling.... has that light thirst quenching slightly Muscat delicious angle. Don't use too much… For me Darjeeling is better with a longer steep and not too much tea otherwise it gets too astringent
