This superb lot is from the "Heritage" section of this classic garden, planted with 150 year old tea bushes.

Tea Flask by CS | Stainless Steel

Besides its insulated aspect, the magic of this flask lies in the fact that none of its components have to be detached to drink the tea, or even to infuse it.

Darjeeling 1st Flush Jungpana WM organic

This exceptional batch, organic no less, comes from one of the flagship gardens of the region. Its long fragile leaves produce its golden liquor with a supple and oily texture supported by the body of its generous tannins. You'll find subtle notes of flowers and berries complementing the more classical aromas of amber, bark and sweet spices. Just lovely from start to finish.

Active for over 130 years, the Castleton garden shines again in classic style. This early lot, produced before the lockdown in India, gives us a rich and tasty liquor enhanced by acidulous and mineral tones.
