    KNOW YOUR TEA

    Established in 1881, located in the heart of Kurseong, the Giddapahar tea estate is one of the oldest plantations in Darjeeling. Known for producing characteristic chinary cups, this 2021 first flush cup is a special one. As you sip, the unique note of greens arrives at your palate. Around the middle, hints of unripe tree fruit with flavors of cantaloupes shore up, rendering intensity to the liquor. Towards the end, delicate notes of green almond linger on, a delightful experience of first flush chinary black tea.
