No. 81, Darjeeling 1st Flush, Rohini Estate, Spring Magic FTGFOP1

$36.00

Harvested on March 1, 2021, this exquisite first flush is one of the first pluckings of the season from Rohini Tea Estate, a young and excellent garden nestled in the Kurseong Valley in North Darjeeling.  

This exceptional lot of first flush tea produces a very fine amber cup redolent with generous notes of wild flower honey, muscatel, iris, and incense which yield to gentle suggestions of pink peppercorn and rose. The brew promises a long, lingering finish and is slightly warming with a balanced, confident energy. 

The manufacturing process is plucking, same-day outdoor withering followed by indoor withering until the following day. Once the leaf is ready the teas are tossed in bamboo drums, followed by fixing, rolling, drying, and finally, the leaves are hand sorted.

Harvest: March 1, 2021 

Elevation: 3000 ft.
