Tea from India - Darjeeling 1st flush 2020 Glenburn Moonshine S.F.T.G.F.O.P.
We were able to buy this lot just before the lockdown. Definitely one of the best lots of this short season. This batch seduces the palate leaving a slightly sweet, playful and honeyed sensation. Very little astringency with zesty notes leaving a refreshing impression on the finish.
