Dry Tea Leaf:
Appearance: Tea leaves are fuller in size comprising of the buds and the two leaf structure. Colour is a mixture of light and dark green delicately hand rolled, perfectly made with promises of a good maturing taste and flavour in weeks to come. Has plenty of silver tips which accentuates the look of the made tea and adds that Himalayan floral fragrance to the dry tea .
Fragrance: Dry leaves have a sweet fragrance coupled with floral notes typical of AV2 clonal teas.
Appearance: Brighter light shades of sparkling light lemon.
Fragrance: Fragrance of Himalayan flora and that of characteristic AV2 is distinct in the liquor.
Flavour: This tea has a distinct taste of AV2 clonal teas and has complex taste and floral notes which becomes prominent as we sip along. The floral aftertaste becomes more expressive as time wanes and the taste lingers covering the entire mouthfeel. A sweet floral and fruity mouthfeel covers the palate and lingers long after the sip. The tea taste better as the liquor gradually cools as we sip along. A light tea with mesmerizing complex taste makes this one of the most recommended tea from us.
No of infusions: Two good infusions brewed at 5 minutes each.
Reasons to buy: Any tea coming from this legendary tea estate is a good enough reason as this tea garden has always kept up to its standards. It's probably the best clonal teas coming in from the Darjeeling hills.
