description

Chinaries have a reputation of holding intense flavors and are immensely popular with first flush admirers. This blend of the best spring chinaries of Darjeeling makes for an exquisite cup that has an earthy feel to it. A vegetal and woody taste accentuated by the sweetness of peas and a certain addition of spiciness makes the flavors complex and layered. A slight briskness to the cup adds an element of brightness like that of the season it is made in. Perfect for quiet afternoons.
