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.

This biological lot, produced from older tea plants, originates from one of the most famous gardens in Darjeeling. With a full and tasty liquor, the delivery on the palate is lively and aromatic, with full of notes of dry wood, fatty nuts and ripe fruit. Its character, full-bodied and malty, makes this tea a worthy morning companion by its simplicity.
