Tasting Notes

From our Chief Tea Taster
Submit
Aroma
Aromatic, marked by notes of Lily of the valley, muskmelon with subtle tones of white currant.
Appearance
Bright-Greenish
Taste
A light-bodied, immensely smooth cup tipped with fresh floral attributes. Aromatic floral notes, redolent of Lily of the valley dominate the palate which gradually ebb to reveal joyful, fruity bursts of muskmelon towards the middle, rendering a distinct texture to the liquor.

Softer tones of spring sap interlaced with fresh-green attributes can be picked up along the edges which gradually open up to finish on exquisite notes of white currant, making for a distinguished experience.

Excellent first flush tea.

2023 has been an exceptional year for Darjeeeling tea gardens. The quality and flavor of teas produced this year has been on par with some of their best years for example the period 2016 to 2018. Seeyok First flush is amongst the best that DARJEELING has to offer. Very refreshing in the classical muscatel flavor profile. This and the teas from Samabeong + Puttabong gardens are excellent. Devine pleasure. Highly recommended.
