Excellent second crop (June’s harvest) consisting almost exclusively of tips from this Darjeeling garden located in the East Valley. Its delicate infusion is extraordinarily subtle, with a Muscatel flavour and aroma. To appreciate it in all its purity it is recommended to drink it on its own. It is distinguished among black teas for its lower theine content due to slight oxidation.
