This innovative, lush garden, high up in the Dhankuta region of Nepal, surprises us once again with this magnificent spring harvest: a most attractive black leaf and bud tea worthy of Mr Orchard's passionate work.

Its complex liquor has a lovely fresh attack with floral, herbaceous and forest flavours typical of the clonal cultivars from this garden. The aromas progress to woody notes with a touch of nuts and bark.

The persistence has our palate waiting for the next sip!
