Badamtam Exotic Spring White Tea

description

This is one of our season's highlights this year. Made from a mix of the fragrant AV2, P126, and B157 clones, it's an unusually complex white tea, velvety smooth and with a thick, sweet floral length that’s rare in Darjeeling whites.

aroma

Immensely fragrant, marked by notes of mango, geranium, hints of jasmine, lily, fennel and fruit rind.

appearance

Champagne

taste

The liquor is full-flavored, crisp smooth, and very aromatic. Big floral notes, of geranium and citrus blossom, dominate the cup. The floral length is long and underscored by notes of mango and sweet greens throughout. The second steep is smoother, softer, immensely floral and has hints of milk.

This tea shows a good complexity, some precise flavors and a great evolution from cup to cup without losing intensity! I had three cups. First is full of flowers, in particular geranium. In a second cup, flowers start to fade and exotism is more present. Third cup is just about mango (I did not expect such an amazing third cup). That kind of tea is very unusual for Darjeeling and cannot be missed by Darjeeling lovers.

Best Served : Anytime, Afternoon, Evening.

The downy buds are just as beautiful to look at as they are to taste. Sweet aromas of fresh tropical fruit and herbs. Finishes with a subtle astringency that tickles the tongue, but not a hint of bitterness. Very generous, the leaves continue to yield flavour after 5+ brews. Among the best teas I've ever tasted.
