Darjeeling Thurbo 1st Flush 2009
Thurbo is renown for the age of its tea bushes which derive from native tea plants. The 2009 picking shows plenty of tip and the tea has a pronounced muscatel aroma and is beautifully rounded without astringency. The Thurbo Estate is located in the Mirik valley south of Darjeeling town, close to the Nepalese border at an altitude of between 1000 and 2400 metres. We recommend you infuse for five minutes.
