I was looking for a good Darjeeling and found this at Silk Road which turned out to be an excellent tea.
Our Darjeeling is a 2nd flush, fair-trade and bio-organic, from the Tindharia Estate.
Lot Notes. Harvested in the 2022 season. The garden lies at an elevation of about 1500 meters. Tea is classed as a black.
Tea Facts. Made from AV2 clonal bushes which often serve to make the "jewel" class of Darjeelings. Tindharia (meaning: 'Three streams') is a village in the Kurseong CD block in the Kurseong subdivision of the Darjeeling district in the state of West Bengal, India.
Taste Profile. Leaves open to flowery notes with light puckering. Notes of honey and hazelnut. Very long finish.
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.
