Set high in the Himalayas, Darjeeling is cherished by connoisseurs for yielding teas of extraordinary aromatic depth. Many of the gardens from which we source our teas were founded in the 19th century. While cultivar selection is a factor, the real complexity of Darjeeling teas is to be explored in the diversity of terrain in the gardens. The weather created by this expansive mountain range creates varying microclimates. The range in elevation, the pitch of the slope and the amount of sun exposure leads to distinctive differences in character. Each garden has a signature aroma profile. The eagerly anticipated First Flush harvest in March-April produces teas with a brilliant golden infusion that captures the essence of spring. This lot from the Shree Dwarika garden is uplifting with its bright notes of Muscat grape, frangipani, orange blossom honey, caramelized sugar and wild rose.
