This Darjeeling black tea returns this year with a spring harvest consisting of two clones (or tea plant varieties) from different sections of the garden.

This new arrival of Indian black tea offers a meeting between two clonal cultivars from the Darjeeling region, T78 and B157. This terroir is renowned for its high quality production with singular and complex flavours rarely found elsewhere.
A smooth, golden liquor emerges from the dark leaves, dotted with buds. Combined with a sweet and fresh effect, the palate is lined with a balance of slight astringency (summer flowers) and fruity notes (zest, green apple). Its delicate vegetal and saline flavours bring the whole experience together.
A tea of exceptional complexity.
