Selim Hill Classic Spring Green Tea
A light Darjeeling cup, brisk with sweet notes of fresh greens and raw fruity hints.
Selim Hill’s green teas have consistently impressed tea masters for years and it only gets better. The tender leaves and their careful handling result in artisanal teas that please the palate quite well. This First Flush is light with a brisk touch and sweet with prominent notes of fresh greens like legumes. The cup gathers some depth with hints of raw fruits coming around the edges which also give it a well rounded feel. A sweet flavor similar to raw cucumber ends the cup which stays on for a cool aftertaste.
