Harvested from a self-sustaining, ecological farm in Northern India.
Plucking Date: March 27th, 2015
Lovers of the leaf, rejoice! The dormancy period is over and the Darjeeling hillsides are radiant with young, fragrant leaves. Rich in flavor, these prized Biodynamic® and Organic certified leaves steep a delicate cup, sure to delight the senses.
We are excited to bring you this year’s first spring leaves from Selimbong Tea Garden in Rongbong Valley in Northern India. This prestigious Biodynamic® garden is located along the valley’s hillside with altitudes ranging from 3,600 to 5,570 ft. Selimbong has been awarded the prestigious Tea Board of India Award for Quality. We selected this tea on site and had it air freighted to ensure the freshest tea possible. Regarded as the ultimate tea experience, limited quantities are available.
Large silver tips and abundant verdant leaves steep a smooth amber cup with very little astringency and a floral hint on the top note.
Each year, our limited edition First Spring Darjeeling tea label features original artwork that captures the essence of this rare harvest. This year’s selection is from our citizen social media art contest chosen from multiple entries. This artwork was created by artist Norah Schoenfarber. It is the thirteenth in a series from our Tea Gallery Collection.
This pure, 100% Darjeeling tea is certified by the Tea Board of India.
