The EX 6 ghanni we are presenting this year is from a tiny 6kg batch of black tea, pure AV2 clonal plants, perfectly showcasing the flavour from the Mahalderam section of Jungpana (Darjeeling).
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.
