Darjeeling 1st flush Giddapahar

DJ-8
Product code: CSTN-186

Renowned for its old classic plants, this small, family-owned garden in the Darjeeling region of India offers us a hard-withered black tea. This process is used to preserve the greenness in the leaves.

Brightness and liveliness are reflected both in the nose and cup, offering a complete aromatic palate of vegetal (bitter lettuce), floral (peony), fruity (strawberry) and woody (green wood) notes.

An invigorating crisp cup!
