Jungpana (Darjeeling 2nd flush) From the Mahandi Valley comes this award-winning Darjeeling tea. Its small, silver-tipped leaves produce a deep caramel brown liquor with spicy aroma, smooth body, muscatel notes and a bright finish. This tea won the competition for the best 2nd flush Darjeeling at the 2008 World Tea Championship.
Dry Aroma: spice, caramel, rich heady citrus depth
Wet Aroma: dark honey, floral, hint of fruit Leaf: larger leaf than standard Darjeeling, with color that resembles golden beauty (dark, rust, silver tip), lots of pollen
Cup: rich golden, champagne color with green cast legs. Clean, sweet, floral depth with almost pollen-like astringency and totally lacking in bitterness or spicy bite. Silky mouth feel, with lingering sweetness. Offers 2-4 extractions with consistent depth of flavor.
brewing method: Standard cupping set – used 2 grams (1 rounded tsp) per 6oz in 190 degree water, steeped for 3 minutes, but allowing for following extractions by raising the temperature of the water and extending the steep times.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 0 sec

as much as I love TeaTrekker I didn’t get this from them. I got a sample sent to me from a tea vendor/direct importer. Lovely.
