It is a limited edition rare First Flush Darjeeling teas which has a bright green finely plucked whole leaves. This kind of tea is made during the first two weeks of First Flush and is produced in very few quantities. During the cold winter months of December to February there is no production and all the bushes are in hibernation. Once the season starts the bushes are in a special state and produce some exquisite flavor. The low temperatures experienced during March impart a very distinct character to the tea. So it has a tantalizing sweet aroma of ripe fruits with a perfect balance of Umami taste. The exact science as to what happens to the bushes during the hibernation period is not known to us.

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 savory taste”.

We’ve all tasted this umami taste without noticing it. Some of our foods which have this umami taste are tomatoes, mushrooms, seaweed, soy sauce and parmesan cheese and breast milk.

The cup is very fruity and mellow with rich notes. The flavor is full and it leaves behind a very pleasant and distinct aftertaste.
