From Bruu Tea

Our Sourenee has sappy, grassy notes, overlain with soft fruits and a deep grapey aroma. The well twisted green leaf provides an earthy undertone.

This came as one of the “golden tea pouches” Bruu offers with every episode of its monthly tea subscription. As I´m not a great fan of green teas, I sort of put it aside, to try it earlier on today. And it sure came as a nice surprise, as I fully agree to what is indicated on the discover sheet : “Our Sourenee has sappy, grassy notes, overlain with soft fruits and a deep grapey aroma.” it´s this grapey touch that I can appreciate here.

All of the info Bruu gives about this tea online :
What it is? An early second flush of roasted green tea.
Why we love it : Due to the altitudes, tricky growing conditions and limited space, the Darjeeling district only produces 1% of India’s tea, at just 8,000 tonnes each year. This makes our Sourenee extremely rare, as it’s one of only a few estates able to produce a green Darjeeling tea.
Where it’s from : The Sourenee Tea Estate, Mirik Valley, India. The estate has an elevation of 700-1300m above sea level. The soil in that region is a stiff red loam with clay.
How our drink hits the senses : These leaves never cease to give out such scrumptious scents. A real unique green tea that oozes quality.
The taste journey : Grassy notes, overlaid with soft fruits and a deep grapey aroma. The well twisted green leaf provides an earthy undertone.

Flavors: Grass, White Grapes

I have a second flush Darjeeling from the same estate, but mine is a regular black. It’s one of the best I’ve tried. (:

That´s interesting…where did you get it?

Nattie

It was from Butiki, but they’re closed for business now.

‘Organic Sourenee Black Blossom’, if you’re interested in reading reviews and comparing the two.

I´ve just read it and it seems like it was a very interesting tea. A shame Butiki closed, as I always admire people with a passion to teach you more about it as well. I make a note of the estate and the black tea…ta!

Nattie

Any time! (: Yeah, Stacy from Butiki was fantastic.
