This is a limited edition Autumn Flush Darjeeling Tea made from the finest quality AV2 bushes. During autumn, the leaves become dry and have very little moisture content in them. Therefore, a lot of skill is required to bring out the flavor and keep the body light. This is done by increased indoor oxidation and a lot of other skills to oxidize the leaf. The most experienced workers carry out these manufacturing techniques in the garden.
The dry leaf is brownish-black in color, which opens up in the pot when brewed. The tea produces a bright orange liquor that has a very smooth and sweet flavor. It is very light on the palate, having a mild chocolate and honey finish without any astringency. The aftertaste is well-defined and long-lasting.
