Puttabong Organic Moondrops 1st flush 2016 darjeeling tea
We are very glad and proud to have this super premium batch of tea in our list. We were continuously in touch with the Superintendant of the garden (Mr. Somani) and the factory assistant manager Mr Amit right from the month of early February 2016. We are buying the Puttabong teas for more than 20 years now, the tea makers exactly knew that we were simply looking for the top batch as usual. I am very thankful to the Superintendant of the garden and the factory assistant manager of this garden for giving us an opportunity to taste this batch of tea and have it in our list of teas. This is the first tea that rolled out of the Puttabong tea estate this year and this is also the 1st batch of tea in our list of 1st flush 2016 Darjeeling teas.
This is a super premium quality organic early season 1st flush 2016 Darjeeling tea which is plucked from the young and tender AV2 and P312 clonal bushes of this prestigious plantation of Darjeeling.
This premium batch of exclusive Darjeeling tea is plucked during the early hours of the morning when the dew drops were present on the young and tender shoots and buds on the tea bushes, as a result of which the made tea has about 80% bold and wiry silver tips in it. The dry leafs gives out extremely high aroma of freshly plucked flowers.
When steeped for complete 5 minutes the cup gives light yellow golden liquor and a very delicious fruity- floral aroma raises high above the cup. Each sip reminds of exotic flowers like white roses and marigold and leaves a slight lemony note on the palate as an after taste.
A majestic tea of the year which is surely a tea makers pride and a tea lover`s delight!
