From Camellia Sinensis

This new arrival of Indian black tea offers a meeting between two clonal cultivars from the Darjeeling region, T78 and B157. This terroir is renowned for its high quality production with singular and complex flavours rarely found elsewhere.

A smooth, golden liquor emerges from the dark leaves, dotted with buds. Combined with a sweet and fresh effect, the palate is lined with a balance of slight astringency (summer flowers) and fruity notes (zest, green apple). Its delicate vegetal and saline flavours bring the whole experience together.

A tea of exceptional complexity.

Cultivar: B157 & T78
Producer: M. jha

Even though overall, this tea is true to its identity as a FF Darjeeling, its subtle notes at times give it a character of a green tea or jade oolong. This makes it fairly unique in some sense, without being truly weird or experimental.

The first sniff gives an impression of scones and green beans. Later, the aroma is more like a mix of eucalyptus and some flowers. The tea has a soft mouthfeel and warming presence, albeit the aftertaste gives off a cooling vibe that comes with its very flowery profile. The taste has a pleasant and decently strong nutty bitterness, some fruity notes of apricot and guava as well as savoury ones like black olives, butter and charred kale. In the aftertaste, a lasting milky sweetness appears too.
