Details

Produced during March at the height of 1st flush, this tea is alive with muscatel flavor. An excellent example of a 1st flush Darjeeling.
INGREDIENTS: Black tea
INGREDIENTS FROM: India
REGION(S): Darjeeling
GROWING ALTITUDES: 3500 - 7000 feet above sea level
GRADE(S): TGFOP1 (Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe #1)
INFUSION: Bright and coppery tending slightly greenish
The plucking fields of Soom are about 5200 feet above sea level and the terrain is very severe with some of the slopes approaching 45 degrees. The slopes are so steep that the estate still carries the green leaf to the factory by mountain pony. Many of the bushes are over 130 years old but produce remarkable tea; in fact it is not uncommon for some 1st Flush teas to be rushed to Germany in a race similar to the Beaujolais Run.
