This premium 1st Flush 2023 Darjeeling tea is of excellent quality and is manufactured by a highly regarded organic tea garden in Darjeeling. For the past 18 years, the garden has consistently produced the “Moondrops” batch for us, and we are proud to offer this year’s top batch.
Expert tea pluckers harvested the tea from pure AV2 clonal bushes early in the morning, when the leaves and shoots were covered in dew, resulting in a fresh, bright green appearance.
The well-twisted dry leaves are large in size and have large unbroken silver tips, with tiny silver hair-like structures visible on the tips. The dry leaves release a delightful aroma of raw mangoes and sweet ripe grapes with undertones of vanilla, honey, white chocolate, and cashew nuts.
When steeped for 5 minutes, the cup produces a bright yellow liquor. Each sip is incredibly delicious, with fruity floral notes followed by a crisp taste of ripe grapes, mangoes, and pineapples, leaving a prolonged sweetness and lemony aftertaste on the palate.
This is a truly majestic and organic batch of premium Darjeeling tea that no true Darjeeling tea lover should miss out on!
