The EX 6 ghanni we are presenting this year is from a tiny 6kg batch of black tea, pure AV2 clonal plants, perfectly showcasing the flavour from the Mahalderam section of Jungpana (Darjeeling).
This loose tea composed of whole leaves and delicate golden buds was dry aged in Hong Kong by Mr Chan. The infusion promises warm notes of leather and undergrowth. Its soft and mineral liquor is adorned with vegetal (lichen) and fruity fragrances typical of old pu er sheng. Its finish is simply sublime with the length and depth of its minty accents evocative of wintergreen.
