No. 78, Jungpana Darjeeling 2nd Flush 2018

         Muscatel ~ Brisk ~ Ripe Fruit ~ Floral ~ Complex

Jungpana is a small, yet distinguished, family-owned garden in the hills of Darjeeling offering an elegant and floral-nuanced medium-bodied second flush, with pronounced notes of muscatel, burnt sugar, and ripe stone fruit. Harvested in June, this well-articulated, quenching, copper-hued tea has a long, resonating finish.  An exceptional tea.
