Recieved my last restock of first flush darjeeling for 2013.
Among them was this much anticipated tea from Singbullis “Tingling” division.

The leaf is long and curly, green with a bit of silver.
Flowery fragrance.

6g / 400ml glaspot
Single infusion 3m @ 90C.

A powerful “thick” tea with loads of flavour and a dry astringency ever present. Now this is a first flush for me. The jungpana was also VERY good but this tea although similar flavours has a better balance of sweetness and astringency.

Top notch tea!

195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec
