Spring Drops 1st Flush Darjeeling 2019
This is the second year in which we’ve had a tea from Samabeong Garden. Samabeong is perched high at 6,000ft, making it one of the highest gardens in Darjeeling. It sits in the far north-east of Darjeeling, away from most of the other gardens.
This batch was picked from section 5 of the garden from original China tea varietals. It has been hard withered (lots of evaporation) and lightly rolled to bring out the delicate fruity aromas, and ensure the light oxidation, which bring to life the leaves of a 1st flush Darjeeling.
Expressing the true character of a 1st flush Darjeeling, this tea overflows with tropical fruit notes of mango, papaya, passionfruit; sprinkled with florals; and stays on the palate until the next sip. We suggest using 3g (1.5 tsp) at 70° for 3 minutes.
