  • Ambience

    DRY LEAF Small, curly reddish-brown leaves and golden hairy buds releasing a fragrance of marigolds & peach with a hints of dry herbs.
    INFUSED LEAF: Light reddish-green uniformed leaves. Aroma is floral, fruity – peach and mango and it has Darjeeling's significant smell of “petrichor” alas "after the rain" sensation.
    LIQUOR: Bright, crisp amber cup with strong floral aroma - orchids and peonies! Liquor is light in the body, but very creamy, almost buttery like. Taste is incredibly floral with flavour of ripe juicy peaches & mangoes. The after-taste has little acidity and lot of astringency.
