The pungency that this tea exhibits is particular to this district. High grown, in that its bushes grow in a band between 4000 - 4500 feet above sea level.
Teas that come from high grown estates provide superior flavor and the best quality because: cooler temperatures, generally better soil conditions, more sunshine, generally slightly less rainfall - These conditions cause the bush to grow more slowly and the goodness and flavor is concentrated in the new shoots.
