| /

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.
