Darjeeling Classic Summer Clonal Black Tea

description

Darjeeling clonals are a treat for the senses. They pack a wide variety of flavors, and every season there is something new to look forward to. This small lot clonal black tea has been made from leaves that have been subjected to high wither and heavy oxidation, resulting in a cup that's full-bodied and brimming with warm, earthy flavors.
