Runglee Rungliot Classic Spring Chinary Black Tea

description

Teas from the Runglee Rungliot tea estate are perennially great value buys. An under-the-radar producer of fine spring flush Darjeelings, their teas have a lovely fragrance and an ethereal quality to them. This season, we are enjoying the geranium notes in their tea, quite likely a result of the ample flowery tips in the leaf mix.
