This first flush Darjeeling tea from the Rohini tea estate has been expertly made. An excellent standard of plucking from clonal tea bushes has delivered a super tea that is only available in very limited quantities. The large unbroken leaf infuses slowly than many of the typical small broken leaf styles that are available.
Depending on your preferences it worth experimenting with different water temperatures. Cooler 85c-95c yield additional sweetness, where as 95c-100c bring out some additional body and strength. Find out what suits you best.

Wonderfully delicate, fresh, and elegant. Really nice for such a great value tea, with notes reminiscent of some lighter Chinese Oolongs with green qualities. Very easy going with just the right amount of astringency. Could not ask for more for the price.
