Rohini (RT-91) Frosted Winter Blossom 2022 – Classic Series
$5.74 / 50 gms tin caddy
This is a limited edition Darjeeling frosted white tea produced at Rohini Tea Estate during the winter season. In this season the growth of the tea is very slow and the workers can only bring in a very small quantity of leaves making it truly special. The workers carefully pluck the tea leaves while making sure that only the best shoots with eminent buds are plucked. The teas are very mildly oxidized and delicately processed to ensure there is minimal damage. The result is an amazingly tippy tea in the autumn flush season.
The tea is very fruity and mellow with light notes. It has a tantalizing sweet aroma with pleasing tastes of fresh green apple, ceylon olives (Indian olives, Indian gooseberry, pear, vanilla with a typical fresh flavour of 157 clones. It leaves behind a very pleasant and distinct aftertaste.
