I'm very excited to be able to offer one of the very first produced Darjeeling teas in 2021 by Rohini Tea Estate.
A fantastic early First Flush Darjeeling with a wonderful crisp floral notes of grapes and apricot.
The tea is produced in the First Flush Darjeeling style with little to no oxidisation and thus technically closer to a white tea than a black. Due to the convention of First Flush Darjeeling being considered black teas, I've placed it within the black tea category but with this note.
Sourced direct from Rohini tea estate in Darjeeling.
