Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

LightFragrant
Light in the cup, with a highly fragrant, sweet mango aroma. The drying muscatel character is lifted by notes of crisp green apples and freshly cut grass, well balanced with a hint of natural sweetness. A well-rolled bold leaf with wonderful silver tips, it's a tea with real finesse, for Darjeeling connoisseurs.
