Darjeeling 2nd Flush, Margaret's Hope Estate 2019
Darjeelings are standouts in the black tea category, renown for their complex aromas and nuanced flavors. The flushes refer to the harvest: second flushes are the second picking of the plants, usually in late April or early May, and are processed to maximize oxidation of the leaves.
This lot, from Margaret’s Hope Estate, was produced entirely from the older china cultivar (Camellia sinensis var. sinensis) plants at around 4,500 feet elevation. An earthy aroma, redolent of taro and cassava root, yields to a deep, nutty flavor of cocoa powder and toasted walnuts.
Region: West Bengal
Tasting Notes: roasted walnut, cocoa powder, taro root
Harvest Season: Spring 2019
It has a wonderful taste when I brew it the right way and at the right temperature. But I do look forward to trying some of your other Darjeeling as well as other black teas.
A beautiful and very tasty tea!
Fabulous tea! The best in the Western world!
