From Darjeeling Tea Boutique

This first flush of 2012 is the best among all first flush of the season as the Garden rightfully boasts about.

Grade: Euphoria Supreme

Description: Crispy whole wiry slender rolled leaves with green and hints of silvering. The most aromatic among all the first flush of this season.

Smell: Distinct First flush smell with the characteristics smell of Darjeeling’s unique aroma. Mellow and fruity which fills the entire senses lasting long even after sometime. Refreshing.

Liqour: A fading light liqour got from a 3 – 6 min. steeping typical of the Spring Teas from the Queen of hill stations, which could easily be mistaken for a white tea. It holds the characteristic fragrance even after brewing, and is complimented by an equally more ambrosia like muscatel taste, which is perfect for as a breakfast tea, or as an afternoon tea, to rejuvenate the tired cells. Simply amazing; Credited undoubtedly as God’s drink. Only for a blessed few.

Light liquor which could easily be mistaken for a White tea. A typical Darjeeling First Flush flavour, the aromas of which fills the air after a minutes’ steeping time. Wholesome, sensuous, fruity, hitting the right notes on the palate with freshness which seems to linger long enough after the last sip.
Definitely, the best Darjeeling tea in the world as boasted by the Avongrove T. E..

Did with the second infusion today. The leaves were fruity and inviting. The liquor got from a 5 minutes steeping were similar to the one from the first infusion. A light liquor with hints of yellowish, and copper. The flavour remained the same but was on the waning side. didn’t expect that mush from a used leaves left in waiting for the second infusion for over 24 hours.
