This tea comes from the Puttabong tea estate, the oldest tea estate in Darjeeling, having been founded in 1852. Its name means "the house of green leaves". First flushes stand out for their rich aromatic complexity.
This spring Darjeeling develops bread crumb, almond, camphor and floral notes against a particularly silky texture.
