Temi, for many years the only garden in Sikkim, produces its teas in the style of neighbouring Darjeeling. This summer harvest has whole leaves of varied colours and is rich with fine buds. Its amber and woody liquor is enhanced by delicious aromas of spices and cocoa. A strong and honest tea is softened by gentle notes of Muscat.
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.
