This is a superb 1st Flush 2023 Darjeeling tea, harvested from pure china bushes in a beautiful Darjeeling tea garden.
The dry leaves have been slightly high fired, resulting in a slightly dark greenish appearance with ample silver tips. The dry leaves give off a refreshing aroma of spring flowers, exotic spices, pine wood, and fennel seeds.
Steeping the tea for a full 5 minutes produces a bright golden orange liquor, each sip of which is smooth and flowery, leaving a light aftertaste of cardamom, cinnamon, and honey on the palate.
This excellent 1st Flush 2023 Darjeeling tea is perfect for a morning cup.
