This Darjeeling Grand Cru comes to us from the Rohini tea garden, which is located in West Bengal (Kurseong subdivision). The highly fine crop from which it is produced is made up of green leaves and large silvery buds. It is produced from clonal tea plants.
The first harvests are renowned for their fresh spring fragrances and their unrivalled aromatic complexity.
This boundlessly soft Grand Cru boasts an oily texture, revealing distinct and delicate peony, citrus zest, almond and vanilla notes.
