This spring Grand Cru comes to us from Darjeeling. It is harvested in the Namring tea garden plantations of the Teesta valley. Located 1,400 metres above sea level, this 475-hectare estate is one of the region's largest.
A complex tea which develops powerful vegetal, fruity and floral notes against a finely astringent texture which gives the fragrances a long finish.
