Picked during monsoon season. Rich earthy flavors, medium astringency, tastes like rainfall.

One of our everlasting favorites from Glenburn Estate, this black tea out of Darjeeling, India is sublime. Unlike the first-flush darjeelings, this one is a standard, full-bodied black tea picked late in the season, during the monsoons. The incredible heavy rainfall is present in the leaves of this tea, giving it a rich earthy tone. The astringency you expect from a black is present, giving it a medium-dark tone that warmly accepts milk and/or sugar, but is absolutely enjoyable without.
