Details

This Grand Cru tea has a green-golden, shimmering infusion that is smooth, fruity with a very fine fragrance. There are notes of geranium, mango, pomegranate, lotus, cherry blossom and pistachio. First flush teas from Darjeeling are amongst the most highly sought after in the world. The unique character of these spring teas from the foothills of the Himalayas makes them difficult to classify. They are barely oxidised so cannot truly be called black tea, although they share the same briskness and rich flavour. The infusion is as pale as a green tea but very different in flavour, so we cannot place them in that category either. Typically, the best qualities, which are the teas we deal in, have a fragrant, floral character, a refreshing, complex infusion and in the dry leaf an aroma reminiscent of fresh blackcurrants on the bush. The teas we source are from gardens where sound social and environmental policies are in place. They belong to many associations including IMO, USDA Organic, India Organic, Ethical Tea Partnership, Fairtrade, UTZ and the Rainforest Alliance. This is a blend of two of the finest first flush lots of the year from the Turzum and Puttabong gardens. DJ-MM-SS
