This magnificent Darjeeling 2nd Flush style black tea comes from the Singbulli Tea Estate, a quiet little garden on the road into Darjeeling’s Mirik Valley. This garden has made a little reputation for itself with its exceptional large leaf clonal teas.

This Indian Darjeeling black tea is a perfect introduction to Second Flush and one of the best we have in the catalogue. The garden of Castleton, more than 130 years of experience and one of the most prestigious of the region, is essential tasting for any tea connoisseur.
Copper coloured leaves and buds offer subtle saline and coffee and caramel notes. Once steeped, an initial aromatic floral burst, develops into a woody, earthy and roasted hazelnut body.
An exemplary Himalayan tea.
