Darjeeling 1st Flush Balasun
Early Spring 2021
Tea Bushes: Clonal AV2 & P312
A beauty of a 1st flush that combines tropical notes with that classic muscatel finish that Darjeeling is famous for. Diving in a bit, we notice soft notes of papaya, white peach, eucalyptus, & kiwi. Evokes an early spring softness of pussy willows in the crisp April air. A balanced first flush, with noted complexity that makes it stand out.
Balasun Tea Estate was established in 1871, and is named for the Balasun River, which flows through the tea gardens! It is located in the Kurseong Valley, in the western part of Darjeeling.
$6.00 – $170.00
