Darjeeling 1st Flush Castleton

Lot DJ-4
Product code: CSTN-40
Add to my notebook

Active for over 130 years, the Castleton garden shines again in classic style. This early lot, produced before the lockdown in India, gives us a rich and tasty liquor enhanced by acidulous and mineral tones. 

Fruits and bark notes are pleasantly balanced in the cup, allowing for finer nuances of flowers and menthol to break through. This deep and profound tea is sure to charm any tea lover! 

An infusion between 90 and 95 degrees is recommended to best capture the wonderful greenness of freshly plucked First Flush Darjeeling.
