This Indian Darjeeling black tea is a perfect introduction to Second Flush and one of the best we have had in the catalogue for years.  The garden of Castleton, 130 years of experience and one of the most prestigious of the region, is essential tasting for any tea connoisseur.   

Copper coloured leaves and buds offer subtle saline and caramel notes. Once steeped, an initial aromatic floral burst, develops into a woody, earthy and roasted hazelnut body.     

An exemplary Himalayan tea.
