About Darjeeling Jungpana:
This Darjeeling black tea comes from the Jungpana Tea Estate (established 1899). The estate is quite remote– around 12km from the hilly town of Kurseong in Darjeeling. Darjeeling tea production has distinct seasons, with early plucking beginning in late March. These first flush crops tend to be a bit greener than the second flush, and are often referred to as the “Champagne” of tea because of their complex, splendid aromas and flavors. This 2023 first flush batch is delicious and fragrant.
Ingredients: Black Tea Leaves.
Bright and uplifting with delicate spring flower aromas and flavors of fresh green grapes off the vine. Pairs well with sweets like chocolate and pear.
