The leaves of this exotic first flush 2017 tea belongs to china cultivar of the higher altitudes and has a good mix of fresh green aromatic leaves along with carefully rolled silver tips which are seen in plentiful, a sign which reflects the decades of experience and craftsmanship of the maker of this exotica. The leaves are predominantly dark greenish in color along with silvery tips which provides a pleasant sight to any first flush tea lover with its sweet fresh aroma akin to those only from fresh tea crop.
The fresh liquor has a bright lemony yellow coloration with subtle fragrance of the wild Himalayan flower which is noted as sipped (hot or cold) followed by mild astringency,typical of Darjeeling first flush teas, which is felt at the tip of the tongue and spreads throughout overwhelming the taste-buds followed by complex flavors of flowers, like that of wild Himalayan orchids and spicy touch. As an aftertaste, one may feel the sweetness of citrus, and ripe grapes at the tip which may be distinctly sensed long after a sip.
For a cup (200ml) a tea spoonful (2 to 2.5gm) is advised. Cool the already boiled water to around 95ºC (203ºF) . Steep for about 4 to 5 minutes with the lid covered over the steeping vessel. Strain and serve hot. This tea tastes wonderful when sipped as it cools.
