First planted in 1867, the Tumsong tea estate is one of the best-known gardens in all of Darjeeling. The garden is planted on a steep slope in Darjeeling's Golden Valley. Over 1600m in elevation at its highest point, the entire estate faces the mighty Kanchenjunga Mountain. The cold Himalayan breezes create a very patient growing cycle for the tea bushes, allowing them to slowly develop rich aromatic nuance and flavor complexity. The teas of Tumsong are known to have a very refined mouthfeel and structure, with lingering high floral aromatics and a wonderful balance of delicate briskness and smooth sweetness.
Tasting Notes: Distinct floral aroma with a creamy-soft cantaloupe flavor and lingering clover honey aromatics.
Ingredients: Organic and Fair Trade Certified™ black tea
