An excellent organic tea from the renowned garden Puttabong, the oldest in Darjeeling, founded 1852.
The leaf of the china jat cultivar is affected before harvest by a small insect, resulting in disruption to the leaf structure whilst growing, which causes oxidation, increasing the content of the aromatic substances and changing the colour, giving the tea a special taste.
A very well made second flush tea with beautiful dark orange to golden brown colour to the cup with a full heavy aroma, including flavours of precious woods, and the rich taste of ripe fruit and muscatel, which holds on the palate for a delicate and soft aftertaste.
(harvested second week of june 2012)
A wonderful tea displaying all the characteristic of a classic Darjeeling Tea in all its balance and glory….enjoy!
