This spring Grand Cru comes from the Orange Valley garden, nestling about 2,000 metres above sea level and overlooking the city of Darjeeling. Its very fine crop is made up of green leaves and large silvery buds.
A complex tea which develops powerful vegetal, camphor and almond notes against an astringent texture which gives the fragrances a long finish.
This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.
