Runglee Rungliot sftgfop-1 (Imperial) Ex-1 Darjeeling tea 1st flush 2016

   It has really been an honour for us to taste and have the 1st batch of Premium Darjeeling tea that rolled out from the garden this year. Mr Yogdeep Gurung who has joined this plantation as the Manager from this year has made some fantastic teas in this plantation which we had missed for many years. This is one of the most beautiful and a very old Garden of Darjeeling. This garden is famous for its classic Darjeeling teas made from its pure china bushes but now this garden is also known for its clonal/young teas made from its young clonal bushes, especially it`s RR clonal bushes. The term RR clone refers to Runglee Rungliot clone which was first conceived in this garden and now this clone of tea bush is also found at many others gardens of Darjeeling.

      We are really glad to offer this fantastic batch of tea from this garden this season and would also like to thank Mr. Yogdeep Gurung and company for giving us the opportunity to have this batch in our list this year.

    This particular batch is the top most quality early spring Darjeeling tea, plucked from the 100% pure RR (Runglee Rungliot) clonal bushes of this old and beautiful garden of Darjeeling. Only one leaf and a bud are plucked from the youngest clonal bushes to make this exceptional batch of Premium Darjeeling tea.
    The dry leafs are wiry, long and bold in size and has a large amount of unbroken silver tips in it. The dry leafs gives out fresh and delicious aroma of freshly plucked orchids and lily flowers.
    When steeped for complete 5 minutes the cup gives out pale yellow/greenish liquor. Each sip is silky smooth which reminds of flowers like lily and dandelion followed by a slight hint of parsley and fennel seeds.

A rare Premium high quality 1st flush 2016 Darjeeling tea which is smooth, flowery and delicious!
