description

The delicate young leaves of this special Darjeeling estate is gently rolled and made to impart a superb floral impression. The scattered silver tips add on to the rarity of this spring oolong lending it a smooth and light body. The sweet fragrance of white orchids and greens are underlined with slight citrusy hints that play pleasingly on your senses. Savor the sensations on your palate as the floral notes wane and present a lively tart note. This adds a bracing quality to the cup. Steep the leaves twice more and load it up with ice for a particularly singular finish.

aroma:
Predominantly floral, slightly sweet with notes of white orchids, hints of sweet green and citrusy undertones
appearance:
Sparkling White
taste:
The liquor is smooth, light-bodied and beams with vibrant floral attributes which commands your attention right from the start. A brief note of sweet-green flavor teases the palate which subside to turn big and floral towards the middle. Here, fragrant notes of white flowers similar to white orchids and jasmine emerge strongly and hum along all the way into the finish. Easing towards the end, a lush wave of citrus enlivens the palate; rendering crispness and distinct character to the cup. The second and third steep is just as flavorful and recommended with ice for a majestic experience.
