Darjeeling 2nd flush TurzumLot Dj-29
This exclusive small batch from the Turzum Garden in the Mirik Valley is produced with such exquisite attention to process. It's made from the leaves of a single cultivar that we rarely get to enjoy unblended, the P312. The P312 was developed from plants from Phoobsering in the 1970’s. It is unusual to taste it on its own as it is difficult to make a pure tea with it. So it is usually blended with other cultivars for balance and complexity.
Long coppery leaves rich with buds give an explosive liquor with immediate notes of citrus. Full woodsy "oak barrel" flavours develop in the mouth while central flavours of bell pepper develop and a persistent floral/fruity aftertaste completes the finale.
This tiny, rare batch may well be the best Second Flush of the season!
