From Mariage Frères

Jungpana, which means “sweet young girl” in Tibetan, is one of the most spectacular gardens in all of Darjeeling, offering fresh and airy teas. This cru is an exquisite example, originating from leaves plucked from the highest parts of the land.
Leaves: elegant, greenish-brown, dotted with multiple silver-tips
Nose: exhales the spirited aromas of camphor and sandalwood
Liquor: orange in colour, its silken texture offers a magnificent bouquet of vernal aromas unravelling around notes of green almond and young Muscatel grape. Benefiting from its soft tannins, the infusion sings with a sweet hint of blackcurrant. Its smooth finish, long and refreshing, delights the palate with notes of freshly picked berries.
The apex of taste.

400ml of water at 195F
1 heaping tablespoon of tea
Steep for 3 minutes
1/4 teaspoon of highly refined sugar

Teapot warmed and rinsed with hot water. Tea leaves placed into the teapot and left standing for 30+ seconds to build up the aroma.

The Spring Flush Jungpana never disappoints. The leaves are very green with silver tips interspersed throughout the tea. The steeped tea is a light orange/red in color. Out of the premium Darjeelings, the price is on the lower side (for Mariage). A very smooth tea with a bold taste, with a slight bit of astringency which compliments the body and flavor of the tea. It does have the grassy/green taste associated with Darjeeling teas. Yet there is no one overpowering characteristics and everything blends together extremely well. Always one of the favorites out of the Mariage FF Darjeeling line of teas
