Darjeeling Autumnal Flush, Seeyok Estate
This Indian black tea is from the organic Seeyok Estate, which faces the Nepal border and averages 5,000 feet in elevation. The autumnal flush, only produced in years in which conditions are favorable, consists of leaves hand-harvested in the late fall—October and November—in limited quantities.
The china bush variety makes up this lot (DJ 211), yielding a cup stronger than a traditional second flush Darjeeling, but still round and well balanced. Woody notes of cocoa, walnut, apple and black cherry dance throughout the rich amber liquor.
Region: West Bengal
