Darjeeling Poobong First Flush 2018 is a lovely black tea with a typical first flush character. It offers a light, balanced taste with brisk muscatel notes. It was grown on Poobong Tea Estate and picked and processed in early spring 2018.

This Darjeeling tea comes from the Poobong Tea Estate located next to Ghoom Town, a location famous for having India’s highest railway station. It is one of the smallest estates in Darjeeling. The name Poobong means ‘a valley behind the clouds’ as this area of Darjeeling hills is very often shrouded in fog.

The leaves of this Darjeeling Poobong First Flush 2018 are rather neat and tippy in appearance, having mixed green colours. The liquor produced is an attractive golden colour with a slight floral and muscatel aroma. This Darjeeling has a robust muscatel first flush profile. The light taste is stony and mineral in character, having brisk citrus notes of lemon peel. The crisp aftertaste is very pleasant and long. Overall this Darjeeling is slightly on the lighter side, yet still displaying a brilliant first flush character.

Darjeeling Poobong First Flush 2018 black tea is best brewed at 90°C for 3-4 minutes according to your taste. It can also stand at least one more infusion. Best taken without milk to fully enjoy the first flush character and complexity of flavours of this fine tea.
