    Dating back to 1855, located under the breathtaking views of Mount Kanchenjunga, the Upper Namring tea estate is known to produce exceptional Darjeeling teas. This year 2021, the spring has arrived in full bloom at Upper Namring. As you begin sipping this cup, delicate flavors of white lilies and geranium envelope your palate. Towards the middle, fresh tropical fruits akin to muskmelon add a fruity character. Hints of citrus fruits and spring sap come right before the end. Steep it again to relish the succulent flavors of raw mangoes. Add ice for an enthralling experience of first flush 2021!

    taste

    A light-bodied, immensely smooth cup which beams with fresh, floral attributes. Delicate flavors of white lilies and geranium envelope the palate right at the start which gradually grow into prominence and gives the cup a sweet, floral character. Muted undertones of fresh tropical fruits similar to muskmelon come through towards the middle and complements the exquisite floral aromatics of the liquor. Light citrusy undercurrents layered with rejuvenating hints of spring sap can be picked up around the edges and towards the end; making for a distinguished experience. The second steep brings forth succulent flavors of raw mango and is recommended with ice for a captivating experience.
