    KNOW YOUR TEA

    Established in 1858, the Badamtam tea estate is a remote tea garden situated in the north of Darjeeling in Lebong Valley. Right from planning to picking to processing, this pristine tea estate is known to produce exceptional quality teas. Organically cultivated, succulent leaves, from a section exclusive to Teabox at 4800 ft. from a clone called AV2, this cup is a true champagne experience. An immensely smooth, light-bodied cup that beams with floral-fruity attributes, reminiscent of geranium, lilies, and citrus blossoms! Around the middle, the rich and luscious flavors of mango arrive. The aftertaste is of a fresh spring sap with lingering white flowers. Steep it again to relish flavors of raw mango and white peaches. Add ice for an equally aromatic third steep and enjoy this immensely aromatic and most prized cup of first flush 2021.

    taste

    An immensely smooth, light-bodied cup which beams with floral-fruity attributes. The fragrant elegance of a flowery bouquet, reminiscent of geranium, lilies and citrus blossom caresses the palate with a powdery veil. The floral length is deep and blends with delectable flavours of mango around the middle and back; rendering a rich, radiant character to the liquor. The luminous fragrance of spring sap chiseled with dappling white flowers lingers on in the aftertaste and makes for an invigorating finish. The second steep is mellower and has pronounced flavors of raw mango interlaced with sweet notes of white peaches. The third steep is just as flavorful and is recommended with ice for a regal experience.
