A newly created style of Darjeeling tea which comes after years of research by Rohini and involved creating a completely new production style.
The tea has undergone several rounds of rolling by hand to achieve a higher level of oxidisation than typical First Flush Darjeelings. The tea is then fixed, rolled and dried at a low temperature for a longer than normal duration.
As a result, the tea has a deeper more lingering taste, with fruity, floral peach and apricot notes coupled with a greater smoothness compared to typical First Flush Darjeelings.
Sourced direct from Rohini tea estate in Darjeeling.
