An experimental black from Nepal's foremost tea producer, created exclusively from Darjeeling's China cultivar. It has a wonderfully smooth muscatel taste with sweet floral hints, evocative of the very best second flush Darjeelings.
I'm delighted to get it back in stock, the latest batch is lighter than the 2018 batch but still delivers a fantastic lingering taste reminiscent of the best early 2nd flush Darjeelings.
The total invoice production was 2kg of which I purchased all 2kg.
