Darjeeling Second Flush SeeyokDj-65
This superior grade of Indian black tea, from the Himalayan garden of Seeyok (Darjeeling), pays tribute to the reputation of this terroir. The colourful blend of leaves and buds from the modern AV2 cultivar offers a tea of rare complexity.
When brewed, the leaves and liquor have a lovely burnt orange colour. Spicy (pepper) and woody aromas typical of the summer harvest in this region are released. A malty character with hints of moka coffee adds suppleness to the tea. Fruity notes of cooked apples are followed. The persistence is marked by a slight floral briskness reminiscent of wild rose.
