Wow. All I can say is wow. This “first flush” Darjeeling is a keeper. This tea makes me understand about all the hoopla about Darjeeling teas. With light liquor, this black tea has both floral and lemony notes. Anyone wanting to have a good example of astringency in their tea should pick up this delicious variety. Highly recommended.
Black tea from the Darjeeling region of India. Spring-time Darjeeling tea is famous for its lively ‘bite’ and an abundance of fresh flavor. This tea is a spirited embodiment of these qualities. The ‘Darjeeling Rhapsody no. 1’ is a highly aromatic first-flush (spring) clonal tea from the upper reaches (7000 feet above sea level) of the award-winning, certified organic Sungma estate.
