Singell Special Summer Chinary Black Tea

description

Singell is one of Darjeeling’s oldest tea estates, established in the Kurseong valley in 1860. We look forward to their second flush chinary tea and this year, the tea exceeds expectations. With more body than the typical chinary, and strong fruity flavors, it’s everything we expect from a second flush.
