Darjeeling Second Flush Castleton

Lot DJ-108
Product code: CSTN-178

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.
