Spirit Tea: Autumn Darjeeling (White)
40g loose leaf tea.
Tasting Notes: lychee, pansy orchid and gingko biloba
Darjeeling autumn flushes are enjoying an uptick in appreciation. Like First Flush, the array of delicate florals, bittersweet muscatel and elegant tannin are born when the plants awaken from dormancy. This lot comes to us from the venerable Gopaldhara Tea Estate. Poor soils, soughing shade pines and steep Himalayan slopes provide the vital balance of sunlight and moisture in the gardens.
