 Thurbo Tippy Clonal Ftgfop-1 DJ 186 / 2nd flush 2013 Darjeeling tea

       The Thurbo Estate is one of the largest tea estates of Darjeeling tea industry situated in the Mirik Valley of Darjeeling district. Reputed and world famous gardens like the Singbulli, Phuguri, Gopaldhara, Seeyok, Selimbong, Okayti and Thurbo Tea Estates are situated in the Mirik Valley. Since Mirik Valley is slightly warmer than other places of Darjeeling, the clonal varieties grows very well in this area and are also world famous for its high quality teas.

     We received the sample of Thurbo Tippy Clonal ftgfop-1 DJ 186/ 2nd flush 2013 Darjeeling tea when we had almost finished choosing our list of 2nd flush 2013 Darjeeling teas. The moment I opened the sample packed I was delighted to see the leaf appearance of the tea and the aroma that just came out of the sample packet felt like “heaven “in one word. The Thurbo Tea Estate has various varieties of clonal bushes and this awesome batch of tea is made from the P312 and S 1240 clonal variety. Also not to forget this excellent batch of tea is made by a master tea maker of the Darjeeling tea industry (Mr. J.D.Rai. Superintendant of the Goodricke group of tea gardens in Darjeeling).
   The dry leafs are well sorted and twisted and have a lot of shiny needle like silver tips. The dry leafs also gives out delicious aroma of honey, oranges and dry forest leafs in this state. When steeped for complete 4 minutes the cup gives out bright yellow/orange liquor and a unique rose like aroma raises high above the cup. Each sip is super smooth and reminds of exotic ripe oranges and pine apples.

      I assure all tea lovers that the moment you try this excellent tea you will simply fall in love with this one!
