1st Flush Darjeeling - Giddapahar China Delight
A classic first flush Darjeeling with a beautiful mix of dark green and copper-coloured leaves from the Chinese tea bush varietal. Refreshing and flowery with sweet almond notes.
The Giddapahar Tea Estate is a small, family-owned Darjeeling tea estate and is also known as ‘Eagles Cliff’. The slopes are shrouded in mist most of the time, giving the Chinese tea bushes just the conditions they need to produce wonderfully fragrant leaves. Once they have been skilfully processed according to age-old methods, the Giddapahar China Delight Darjeeling is one of the very best teas available of this grade with wonderfully sweet, mildly nutty, complex characteristics.
