Arya Diamond 2013 First Flush Darjeeling SFTGFOP1
This organic black tea was harvested in April 2013. The 2013 First Flush harvest was truly stellar, and our Arya Diamond SFTGFOP1 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.
