Turzum Classic Summer Black Tea
A brisk summer Darjeeling with a medium body, subtle flavors of peaches, plums and warm wood spice.
Turzum, located in the distant Rung Bong valley south-west of Darjeeling town, offers rare and exquisite teas every year. This one stands out with its delicate fruity notes of peaches and plums from the first sip. The briskness of the liquor adds a crisp texture to the medium-bodied experience. One can discern hints of musk mixed with pleasant and warm wood spice giving the cup a lively appeal and depth. Notes of red berries come up toward the end, adding a sweet overtone and a remarkable aftertaste.
