Product code: CSTN-188
Add to my notebook

Samabeong in Darjeeling is a remote garden east of Kalimpong town near the Bhutanese border.  This isolated terroir gives the tea a unique flavour of its own. Originally planted by the Scots in 1882, its current tea-maker amazes us with the quality of these clonal leaves, with such high bud content.

This instantly tea demands the taster's attention with its finesse and lightness. Floral and zesty flavours, enhanced by the fruity sweetness of muscatel notes, give the infusion an exceptional balance between its suppleness and attack. 

A tea to drift off into a dream with.
