Description: This early 2012 selection is an attractive, well-made tea, with dark olive leaves, laced with delicate white tips and a smattering of brown leaf pieces. The cup has a gentle character with mild pungency and interesting grape flavor notes. The aroma is fresh and inviting. Early lots of Darjeeling teas are very small this year due to a lack of rain, so supply is limited.
Steeping Suggestions: - Leaf Quantity: 2¼ g/cup Water Temp: 212° (boiling) Steep Time: 3 min.
