This organic black tea was harvested in the spring of 2011, when tea from Darjeeling was in limited supply due to political issues in the region. However, what Darjeeling lacked in quantity, it made up for in quality. After several years of sub-par output, the 2011 First Flush harvest was truly stellar, and our Singbulli SFTGFOP1Q is perhaps the best example of what makes this origin and flush, as well as this particular harvest, noteworthy.
Small, muted tealeaves hold a bold aroma of parmesan-dusted popcorn and a pervasive green scent of springtime. The aroma of the golden yellow brew is sweetly floral (think honeysuckles and gardenias) and accented with green notes of menthol and d’Anjou pears. Clean flavors of eucalyptus, green pear, fresh flowers and dry pine needles evoke springtime, while a syrupy mouthfeel satiates the palate.
Pair this rare tea with clean, crisp foods, such as jicima slaw, Waldorf salad or sliced honeydew.
