The brew elegantly expands before ending on a delicately fruity and sweet note. This exquisite First Flush is full of refreshing spring flavours and is the perfect choice for lovers of Darjeeling tea.
Spectacular organic tea gardens in Darjeeling
Jungpana, which name stems from the Tibetan term for 'sweet young girl', is one of the most spectacular organic tea gardens in Darjeeling. The Jungpana garden is tucked away on a rugged mountainside at altitudes ranging from 3,000 to 4,500ft.
Surrounded by pine forests on the upper reaches to the north, and swiftly gurgling mountain streams to the south, east and west and skirted by dense vegetation, the tea garden is almost impregnable, cocooned by Mother Nature for safe keeping.
No wonder that Jungpana is endearingly referred to as 'An Island in the Mountains'. The environment boasts of a large species of flora, that attract birds and butterflies, rarely seen elsewhere. The Himalayan bear - attracted by the damp and mossy pine forests, as well as leopards and deer, car also be spotted in the ferny undergrowth, on the periphery of the estate.
