TS72: Sikkim Temi Estate FTGFOP1 Ch. First Flush
The cup is exceptionally smooth, with interesting muscat and fruity nuances, along with the balanced pungency of a top quality first flush tea. This tea was harvested from China jat (varietals) at the same time as the clonal counterpart (TS86). The cup from the China jat is slightly sweeter, while that of the clonal variety is slightly thicker. For comparison, consider buying a sample of one and a packet of the other.
