Darjeeling First Flush Singell Organic & FairtradeLot DJ-8
A stunning batch of First Flush black tea from the " Heritage " section of the Singell garden in Darjeeling. This section of 160 year old seed-grown tea plants is cultivated using biodynamic methods, high in the mountains of the Himalayan range. This style of tea has given Darjeeling the reputation as the "Champagne of black teas”.
The infusion of its beautiful green leaves, typical of this style of First Flush black tea, reveals a clear, lively and balanced liquor, with an aromatic richness that makes this tea one of the best Darjeeling on our list. Its complex structure progresses with herbaceous, floral and slightly fruity notes bringing a surprising lightness to this fine and thirst-quenching tea. Its persistence wonderfully combines woody and sweet tastes.
This tea worth taking a mindful moment for.
