From Teabox

Classic, second flush clonal tea from one of Darjeeling’s most respected gardens. This elegant tea boasts a lovely, vivacious high tenor aroma of mixed flowers with pleasant accents of mint and retsina. Perfect afternoon tea when the guests are from the “A-list.”.

The Avongrove tea estate is situated at the foothills of the Himalayas, overlooking the picturesque Balasun River. This is one of the most highly reputed tea estates in Darjeeling, because they follow the most traditional ways of manufacturing tea till date to ensure the best of quality. Each leaf is nurtured, right from the time it is carefully hand-picked to the time it is proudly packed to be sold. This estate produces one of best traditional Darjeeling leaf tea while their specialty flowering tea called the hand-woven Florette is also equally popular amongst tea connoisseurs.

I have a slightly different version of this tea, but I’m too lazy to make a new entry. :) Finally trying to get through all these Golden Tips/Vahdam samples! So here is what the sample label says:
Vahdam Avongrove Premium Darjeeling Organic Summer Black Tea
Date of picking 4th June, 2015. Grade FTGFOB1
The dry leaf smells like a darjeeling, quite floral. The steeped tea has floral notes as well, and a slightly spicy note. The flavour is a bit lighter than I expected, lots of floral and fresh green, like freshly cut alfalfa hay. There is a slight astringency developing as I get about halfway through my mug. This is nice, I tend to drink more Chinese black teas, but when I drink a darjeeling I always think “yeah, I like these too!”. My thing is that I’m not sure I differentiate between different darjeelings very well? First vs second flush, yes, but would I be able to distinguish this from another summer darjeeling? Anyway, I’ll try a few more today, see if anything becomes clear.
