About this Tea
Grown in the foothills of the Himalayas in Northern India, Marybong is a garden in the Chamong Group – producers of some of the best organic Darjeeling teas in the region. First flush begins in Late March and lasts for about 30 – 45 days where each bush is plucked of its new growth every 7 days. Teas produced during this period are light in body, slightly greenish with subtle nuances nuts, flowers and peaches.

Ingredients
A blend of first and second flush organic Darjeeling teas.

I guess this first flush Darjeeling is technically cheating, since it is a blend of both first and second flush leaves. That said, I wanted to try it anyway. I was at Smith HQ with my mother (which seems to be the recurring pattern), and noticed it was one of the black teas I didn’t remember trying. Why that is, I know not; for it possessed a character that was surely memorable. Like other Marybong offerings I tried, it was strong in it’s “jalapeno”-spicy notes and floral lean. I prefer my blacks on the light side, and this certainly was. Time went by so fast, I didn’t realize I was finished ’til I poured drips out of the pot. A habit-forming Darjeeling.
