This first-flush FTGFOP1 Darjeeling tea is from the Marybong tea estate, which is located in the Eastern Valley of Darjeeling. The tea has a well-balanced, aromatically sweet and strong taste, with a certain body. The leaves are smaller, fine and dark with green parts and bright tips. Once in the cup, the colour is light copper, typical of a tea for the late first-flush period. A very special Darjeeling tea indeed.
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.
