Lot DJ-35
Product code: CSTN-145
Add to my notebook

A rich and flavorful mid-flush organic delight that crops up every year in Puttabong Tea Estate (known affectionately as the “Clonal Queen”) just north of Darjeeling town.

This blend of cultivars (including the popular AV2 and the elusive T78) presents a well-defined taste profile, easy to follow as it develops in the mouth. Light herbal and flowery head notes moving into darker nuances (incense and muscat) before trailing off with fruity hints at the end (peaches).

This year’s thirst quenching Darjeeling by excellence.
