This world class tea garden bestows upon us this heavenly clonal First Flush delight. This lot, composed of large leaves and curled buds, is typical of modern aesthetics. It’s light and spacious liquor ranges from scents of herbs and flowers (wild spring flowers) to supple notes of peach and muscatel. A perfect example of pure AV2 cultivar and the glory of young tea plants in the Himalayan soil.
Darjeeling 1st Flush Jungpana WM Organic | Collection BoxLot DJ-6
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.
