This tea is a second-flush TGFOP1 Darjeeling that was named after the tea garden proprietor's beloved daughter. The garden is planted with Chinese type 'Thea sinensis'. The slow growth of these plants in the cool altitudes of the Himalayas forms the basis for this high-grade tea. The end product is sparkling and fully aromatic with an amber-coloured cup and spicy bouquet. Perfect taken in the afternoon.
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.
