From Camellia Sinensis

Here is a batch of black tea from the spring harvest of one of the leading gardens in the mountainous region of Darjeeling in India. Jungpana has been in our catalogue for several years now with its exceptional traditional Darjeelings sourced from classic plants.

Leaves release a golden liquor with a supple and oily texture supported by a body of generous tannins. The fine aromas of flowers are complemented by the classic nuances of amber, bark and aromatic herbs.

A delight from start to finish.

2021 sipdown no. 98

This tea is good, but in relation to the other first flush I recently had from CS, I do prefer the other. That being said, this one has that lightly creamy, malty-esque type flavour, with hints of floral hay cut through. There is the most subtle bitterness that isn’t overly bothersome.

The second steep is just as lovely as the first.

I brewed this at 190° F as opposed to 200° F as the higher temperature seemed to induce some astringency.

[Spring 2021 harvest]

Here’s quite a flavourful tea with great depth and lots of elusive notes. It has a bit higher oxidation than many FF Darjeelings and turned out to be my favourite of the three I got this year.

I can smell popcorn, grass flowers, and moss at first. The floral wet leaf aroma brings out hints of courgette flower, lime zest, honeysuckle, rice field, and apples.

I find the liquor to be medium bodied and creamy with a fleeting foamy touch. The taste is woody and warming. It has a astringent, floral bite to it, as well as flavours of pistachio, white grapes, egg shells and others. Aftertaste also brings more sweetness and umami to the table. There are hints of butter, pine and a stronger honey note that appears after a while.
