description

The tea estates in Darjeeling go to sleep over a few months of cold winter. The plants lie dormant accruing nutrients and gathering strength for spring to come. This rare batch of Badamtam’s finest is made from the very first leaves that sprout after the long, dry, yet recuperating winter days. Spring has given them new life and flavor. Made from the supremely fragrant AV2 clone and coveted all over the world, only a small batch of these first leaves are available. Exclusively plucked for us for your first taste of freshest spring teas.

aroma:
Immensely fragrant and sweet, redolent of geranium, jasmine and lily with an undercurrent of raw mango and hint of spices
appearance:
Champagne
taste:
The liquor is immensely smooth and aromatic, well-balanced, crisp and tipped with floral-fruity sweetness. Intense floral notes of geranium and jasmine greet the palate and dominate the cup. A fruity sweetness, similar to mango emerges around the middle and the back, balancing the rich floral attributes of the cup. Subtle flavor of sweet greens can be picked up in the aftertaste. The second steep is mellower and has a pronounced flavor of raw mango in it. Recommended with ice for a truly sublime and exhilarating experience.
COMPLEMENTS:
Best enjoyed on its own.
