origin: india

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

Our 2019 Spring Darjeeling is an early harvest black tea from the Darjeeling region of India. Different from later harvests, this first flush has a light body and layers of character that lean toward floral with a hint of fruity notes, and a crisp clean finish. Grown on the Balasun Estate, it has all of the classic notes of a first flush that are highly prized by connoisseurs across the globe.Famous for producing some of the best quality teas, the Balasun Tea Estate (est. 1871) is spread across rolling hills with moderately gentle slope. The garden altitude varies from 365 meters to 1375 meters above sea level and temperature ranges between 44 degrees in winter to a maximum of 85 degrees in summer. Steep at 212°F for 2-3 minutes

      It's light and a bit bitter, in a pleasant way. It reminded me a bit of jasmine.

      A lighter black tea. I really enjoyed it, especially with sugar.

      Oh yeah, this stuff is amazing. Really smooth and sweet with almost a raisin-y aftertaste.

      I agree that this tea is a much more milder darjeeling tea. Just okay in my opinion, but decent to try.

      Very mild! Not bad, but not bold either. It really doesn't have that much complexity to it but I admit, I like it!
