Exclusive early Spring first flush Darjeeling harvested from organic Turzum garden using the Bannockburn 157 cultivar. This clonal cultivar is not very attractive in appearance but stands out for its incredible aroma. While this tea is a SFTGFOP-1 it is also referred to as Turzum Wonder which separates this tea quality from others of similar nomenclature and so it stands out in a league of its own. You’ll find it to be a a very light, fresh and floral first flush with a sweet taste, with typical Darjeeling first flush astringency and lots of umami. Its aroma is multi-layered with fresh, floral notes gradually shift towards fruits like papaya and apricots.
We have just a small quantity of this luxurious tea so be warned… this one will disappear very quickly!
