A tea that had already experienced considerable acclaim internationally, I worked with the manager of Lumbini tea factory Chaminda Jayawardana to reduce the level of oxidisation of this tea for the Australian market. It is still a strong tea with loads of character, moderate enough to be enjoyed black but with a strength of flavour that easily stands up to milk.
3 Tasting Notes
This tea has loads of flavour, a current favourite of mine. Its long rolled leaves make for a really smooth and medium bodied tea with distinct honey like sweetness and enduring length.
Quite possibly one of the best first flush Darjeeling teas I have had the joy of tasting. Medium bodied, sweet with beautiful depth of character.
