From Zhi Tea

Dive in to the Eagle’s Nest! Nestled high above the fertile valleys of Sri Lanka, lies the Idulgashinna Estate, the world’s first certified organic tea garden. This designer tea, acquired by Zhi, has all the hallmarks of a world class tea. And indeed it is.

Reminiscent of a top-quality second flush Darjeeling, with a distinct muscatel flavor, Eagle Nest is a sweet, malty delight that reveals its deep character over several steepings. We are proud to offer this superb tea from this renowned estate.

My first time with this particular tea, so I used a glass gaiwan, wanting to see and interact with it as much as possible. I especially loved the balsamic herbaceous notes arising through the malt of the first steep. Some muscatel emerged in the second brewing, making Zhi’s comparison to a second flush Darj seem right-on. Sweet aromas linger in the empty cup. The liquor is a sparkling rosy-amber and very pretty to behold, as well.

This is my second encounter with one of Indulgashinna Estate’s organic marvels … the first having been with the long, thin, pouchong-ish twists sold as “Blink Bonnie” or “Arjuna.” Sampling more of Sri Lanka’s better picks leads to the realization that the country has ample variety in terroir, altitude, environs and processing methods … so much more than formerly came to mind at the name ‘Ceylon.’

1.5 tsp/3oz water. Four steepings: 30s, 1m, 2m, 3m
