Dry leaves
Aspect: Long crumpled black leaves (gently rolled) with some green leaves (small)

Liquor
Colour: A gleaming liquor, golden yellow with green highlights
Texture: Astringent right from the start, developing throughout the palate, giving this tea both a fullness and a long finish
Flavour: A delicate bitterness that complements the lingering effect of the astringency
Aromas: Almond and sweet vanilla notes, combined with floral fragrances, developing planty, herbal notes (camphor, rosemary, thyme)
Aromatic profile and length in the mouth: Intense from the start, full in the mouth, and long-lasting. Wonderful lingering quality combining the bitter notes, the lively fragrances (planty: stems and herbs) and the floral bouquet (rose, organge blossom, peony)

Our verdict: For Darjeeling lovers and tea connoisseurs, this first lot from Rohini garden is a real delight. This is the batch of teas plucked from the garden in 2011 and due to the first flush shipment embargo in Darjeeling, our team worked very hard to ensure that our customers are not disappointed by overcoming certain odds in ensuring that this teas reaches Darjeeling lovers. This is a great first Flush Darjeeling tea with wonderful lingering quality and an impressive floral bouquet. Its sweet vanilla notes combined with the floral fragrances makes it a great 2011 first flush Darjeeling
