Tea Story

This exceptional garden reaches altitudes of 6000 feet. Selimbong Estate is located on the Indo-Nepal border in the Mirk Valley. 

Having operated since 1886, this tea garden is well-known for its outstanding tea quality. This particular Spring Blossom First Flush is certainly no exception. The dried leaves offers a beautiful aroma of floral and tropical fruits with abundance of delicately rolled silvery tips and vibrant green leaves. The infusion is a light golden hue almost resemblance of white tea, preserving all the wonderful subtle flavour compositions of this first flush Darjeeling. The leaf offers a unique floral aroma & delivers a delicately light cup with peach and minty pine notes.

This light-bodies most delightful tea with its fresh and sweet tropical flavours is sure to transport you to the misty mountains of Darjeeling. This tea is best enjoyed as a mid morning or an afternoon tea. This tea is perfect on its own and we do not recommend adding milk with this tea, however a few drops of lemon and a drop of honey may enhance its flavour.

Well-made delicious Darjeeling black tea.

If you look at dry leaf, it contains a lot of silver tips and has a high oxidation level. Tea leaves are a small breed of China hybrid and dry tea looks similar to Oriental beauty.
When you boil tea, it has a strong scent of sweet and fruit. When tea is held in the mouth, the scent of sweet and fruit that was felt in the scent is delivered as it is. It's like the scent of sweet chestnuts and the taste of sweet chestnuts taste like honeyed chestnut. When you roll a tea in your mouth, you can also smell a bright flower. Convergence is mild but not burdensome. Wet leaves also has delicate buds and leaves that remind you of Oriental beauty. Concerns are also good according to preference of 4-5 minutes at 95ーC.
