Grown in the foothills of the Himalayas, Darjeeling is known as the champagne of teas. This Autumnal Darjeeling is picked towards the end of the year. The tea produces an infusion with an enticing amber colour.
This single estate TGFOP1 Darjeeling, is stronger in body and colour than the 1st flush. The Autumn flush is the final and the most challenging of the picking season because of the variable weather conditions. After the monsoon season the leaves grow slowly as they wind down towards dormancy. The result is a full bodied fruity and soft muscatel flavour. The brew has a dark amber colour. The finest flush of the year? Its balanced taste is perfect for afternoon tea.
The distinctive flavour of Darjeeling arises from an unusual combination of high mountains, steep terrain, well drained soil and misty swirling clouds. Add the extreme cold in the winter and intense heat in the summer and the end result is the exquisite muscatel character and flowery aroma of good Darjeeling.
