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.

Darjeeling 1st flush Puttabong Organic

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.
