This exceptional batch, organic no less, comes from one of the flagship gardens of the region. Its long fragile leaves produce its golden liquor with a supple and oily texture supported by the body of its generous tannins. You'll find subtle notes of flowers and berries complementing the more classical aromas of amber, bark and sweet spices. Just lovely from start to finish.

Active for over 130 years, the Castleton garden shines again in classic style. This early lot, produced before the lockdown in India, gives us a rich and tasty liquor enhanced by acidulous and mineral tones.
This black tea is from the Castleton Estate, one of the oldest gardens in Darjeeling. Most of the fields of this garden were planted with Chinese trees back in the 1860s, giving the teas produced here a unique character and complexity.
