Rohini Rare Spring Green – First Flush Green Tea 2021

 615.00 / 50 gms paper box

This special and rare Darjeeling Green Tea has been made at the Rohini Tea Estate, the youngest tea garden of Darjeeling. This type of unique Green Tea can be made only in the season of spring which has the freshness of first flush teas. The bushes are covered with thick natural shades which help the leaves to retain chlorophyll and give it a unique taste. The tea has been specially made from special green tea clones which have less tannin content in them. The tea has dark green colour whole leaves that give a rich, exquisite, smooth, vegetal and umami flavour with a hint of pine leaves. The tea has no astringency and a lingering sweet aftertaste.

We all know about the four basic tastes i.e. sweet, sour, bitter, and salty. But we never noticed that there is an additional taste called “Umami”. It is a Japanese word which means “pleasant savoury taste”. We’ve all tasted this umami taste without noticing it. Some of our foods that have this umami taste are tomatoes, mushrooms, seaweed, soy sauce and parmesan cheese, and breast milk.
