2019 First Flush Darjeeling - Caddy

£55.00 sku SO2019FFDC-90 | Net weight: 90g

Since our story began in 1706, at Twinings our passion has been to bring you riches from the world's finest tea gardens. Tea growing regions are as diverse as those of wine and whisky: think of this collection as a tour of the very best.

origin

Each year in the Darjeeling hills, Holi, the Festival of Colours signals the arrival of Spring. At Chamong, four to six thousand feet up in the misty foothills of the Himalayas, estate owner Ashok and his family watch and wait for the right time to pick the year's first leaves. And as the mists clear ahead of the rains, they set to work, especially for Twinings.

Tea Description

Tea leaves grown this high and plucked this young are simply unique. We love the bright emerald twists and abundance of silvery tips; the amazing intensity of fresh, fragrant flavours in the honey-coloured liquor and the lingering finish. The tea has a lovely sweetness and quality that is characteristic of Chamong Estate, from whom we've been buying tea since the 1880s. This is a 2019 limited edition.
