Thurbo Moonlight DJ 264/ 2nd flush 2014 darjeeling tea
Thurbo Moonlight DJ 264 / 2nd flush 2014 Darjeeling
Thurbo tea estate is situated in the Mirik valley of Darjeeling district. The climatic conditions of Thurbo tea estate is slightly warmer than other tea growing areas is Darjeeling. Thurbo Tea Estate is world famous especially for its clonal teas. In recent times it has gained appreciation worldwide for its clonal black and white Darjeeling teas.
Since it has been raining quiet often in Darjeeling during the 2nd flush harvest we have been choosing the right 2nd flush batches strictly than previous years as we do not want any low quality teas in our list.
We were delighted to receive the sample of this particular batch. The dry leafs are extremely well crafted and is a delight for the eyes and nose in its dry leaf state.
When steeped for complete 5 minutes the cup releases bright golden liquor. As the tea cools down in the cup each sip reminds of crisp white wine. There is the dryness to the tongue, the slight hints of different fruity flavours that you coax can tease until they fade or morph into something else entirely.
This is a superb offering of the 2nd flush 2014 Darjeeling tea harvest and should not be missed by a true Darjeeling tea lover!
