Arya Emerald 2nd Flush Green Darjeeling
Green Darjeeling tea is a rare and delightful treat.. This one from the Arya estate in Darjeeling is delicious and rivals many of the best Chinese green teas.
The leaves are small and delicate; a mix of gold and sea green leaves with small downy buds that respond well to a cooler brewing temperature and shorter steeping time. Once brewed, the clean light liquor gives off a wonderfully floral and fruity aroma. The taste evokes plump, juicy fruits: a subtle pear and grape note that lingers long on the palate.
