Darjeeling Puttabong Summer Black Tea

Darjeeling Puttabong Summer (Adagio Teas)
3 min at 212°

Black tea from the famous Darjeeling region of India. This summer harvest tea comes from Puttabong Estate. These tea gardens are some of the highest in the world, at 6000 feet above sea level. At these high altitudes, the tea leaves grow more slowly, and have more time to develop their unique Darjeeling flavor. This one has sweet, white grape or dessert wine fragrance, slightly earthy, and smooth, sweet-tangy flavor with a more gentle astringency than typical for these teas.

This is a lovely smooth dark tea with little to no astringency. I’ve heard that the spring harvest Darjeelings are the best but I am not certain how it can get much better than this. I didn’t get any sweetness or grape flavouring- just a lovely slightly earthy tea.
