Darjeeling 1st Flush, Goomtee Estate

$33.25
| /

Eagerly anticipated each spring, Darjeeling First Flush represents the initial harvest from plants that have lain dormant all winter. The mountainous region, at the foothills of the Himalayans, has long been celebrated for its dramatic landscape and distinctive teas. For this style, the leaves are carefully hand-picked and undergo a unique hard withering process, which produces the characteristic fresh, nuanced fragrances and a bright flavor.

This lot (DJ 04) hails from traditional china bush cultivars on Goomtee Estate. Deep flavors of hazelnut and buttered spinach are balanced by aromas of fruit and flowers from the infused leaves; the velvety texture and thirst-quenching quality round out a classic first flush.

Country: India

delicious but don't over brew!

I had to take my scale back out for this one - when I do it correctly it's DELICIOUS and when I don't, it's real bitter, so just be careful and follow the directions - this one is not very forgiving!
