This Darjeeling black tea returns this year with a spring harvest consisting of two clones (or tea plant varieties) from different sections of the garden.

Its liquor is rich and fruity, combining notes of spring fresh herbs and flowers, typical of AV2, with malty and spicy accents from the T78 cultivar.

A tea suitable for any time or place, one to discover, or rediscover!
