description

From a legendary Darjeeling estate, famous for it’s green teas, comes this spring green. Selim Hill has large sections made up of the old chinary bushes, from where the leaves for this tea were harvested. The liquor is a luminous green with a prominent milky note. It also fares better than last year’s spring green in texture. However, it’s more complex than a typical Indian green tea and likely to be enjoyed more by a connoisseur.
