Darjeeling 1st Flush Jungpana WM Organic | Collection Box

Lot DJ-6
Product code: CSTAD-307
Add to my notebook

The EX 6 ghanni we are presenting this year is from a tiny 6kg batch of black tea, pure AV2 clonal plants, perfectly showcasing the flavour from the Mahalderam section of Jungpana (Darjeeling).

Made from such young and precious shoots, it is extremely aromatic. Nose of bitter citrus and muscatel, hazelnut and sourdough, it explodes with scents. 

In the mouth it is expansive and full.  Soft, sweet, warm… like brioche bread with very complex flavours. Almost everything’s in there: woody and fruity aromas alongside spicy tones and floral nuances. The ultimate young plant Darjeeling experience.
