This is an early first flush tea just after winters. It’s from Rohini Tea Estate, the youngest tea estate of Darjeeling. Rohini is mostly the first garden to produce the first flush in Darjeeling in 2020. The dry leaves are bright green in appearance and consist of finely plucked whole leaves. It has a tantalizing sweet aroma of ripe fruits with abundant fresh flavour. The cup is very fruity and mellow with rich notes. The flavour is full and it leaves behind a very pleasant and distinct aftertaste. The low temperatures experienced during winters impart a very distinct character to the tea.
During the month of March when the temperature is low and the climate, in general, is very cool. The tea bushes are grown and harvested at an elevation between 1500-3000 feet. The high elevation imparts a special flavor in the teas, making it unique in the world-class. This tea undergoes natural oxidation during the manufacturing process and as such, there is no induced oxidation for this tea.
The workers are very careful in there plucking to make sure only the best shoots with prominent buds are plucked. First flush teas are known to be slightly oxidized to ensure that all the exquisite flavors are prominently present. That fresh feeling of Darjeeling tea is naturally available.
The Plucking is of such fine quality that the tea only needs to be hand sorted and the machines used to make the tea are very rare. It is a true delight and one of our First Flush Darjeeling Tea.
