Smooth, flowery notes

Our Darjeeling is a 2nd flush from the Namring Estate. The Estate is located in northern India’s Teesta Valley, which was in operation since 1855.

Lot Notes. Harvested in the 2019 season. The garden lies at an elevation of about 1200 meters. Tea is harvested generally in May.

Tea Facts. Tea is hand plucked and well processed. The high elevation of the garden and its variations in weather have served to create well-defined, clear notes.

Taste Profile. Lot offers smooth, full taste characteristics. Leaves open to flowery inital notes. There is a well-crafted tension between leaf astringency and its floral flavors. The leaves cup to a rich, yellow-golden color.  

Brewing suggestions. Tea does well with water just short of boiling. Use 3 grams in water 195-205 F steeped for 2.5 - 3 minutes to yield a round and full flavor.

    I was looking for a good Darjeeling and found this at Silk Road which turned out to be an excellent tea.

    Darjeeling is one of my favorite black teas, but not all are of the same quality. Silk Road's Darjeeling is flavorful with a nice balance of smoothness and astringency.

    A great all around black tea.

    This is a pleasing tea. I like it with a bit of honey (Locally sourced from here in Arizona). If you like iced tea this is also a great choice.
