This Indian Darjeeling black tea is a perfect introduction to Second Flush and one of the best we have had in the catalogue for years. The garden of Castleton, 130 years of experience and one of the most prestigious of the region, is essential tasting for any tea connoisseur.
Darjeeling 2nd flush GiddapaharLot EX-19
Here is a black tea from India, coming from the small family garden of Giddapahar, Darjeeling. They are known for their original classic tea plants, but recently, they’ve been experimenting with new clonal plants (AV2).
Rich in textures and flavours, this black tea leaves give a clear, amber-coloured cup, expressing sharp hints of fruit (sweet orange), notes of sandalwood and subtle spices (pink pepper) followed by a persistent orange blossom aroma.
A fragrant tea that dwells pleasantly in the mouth long after each sip.
