This tea is made in Kangra, in the north-west of India. It is an unconventional tea which resembles an oolong. Its carefully crumpled leaves are only slightly oxidised, which helps to give this Grand Cru its vivacious and fresh notes.
A highly aromatic oolong with camphor, vegetal and floral notes which develop against a round texture.
