This is a really beautiful Darjeeling. My first impression was that it was the best Darjeeling I’ve encountered. The flowers in the tea add a very subtle soft fragrance that is wonderful. It is a full bodied Darjeeling, very smooth with a lovely finish. More as I get into this one…
Darjeeling Rose Camélia
Grand black Darjeeling teas, with their remarkably developed flavours of muscat grapes and ripe fruit, are blended and heightened with rose petals.
The handsome, long jade green leaves are carefully picked, rolled by hand, and endowed with white tips. The liquor is amber and bright.
The cup is fruity, simultaneously round and lively, long in the mouth, with a gentle hint of flowers.
