This Darjeeling black tea comes from the prestigious Castleton garden in India. Wonderful vintage that brings together all the qualities of the great Darjeeling Second Flush. It offers a symphony of malty and floral notes that blends with the velvety texture of this great black tea. With both soft and powerful facets, it evolves perfectly in the mouth.

Darjeeling tea is one of the most famous black teas in the world. Its notoriety is due to its great finesse and its unique aromatic themes. The Darjeeling region, located at the beginning of the Himalayas in northeast India, is characterized by its high altitude and steep hillsides. Its leaves react to the action of an insect and give the tea a characteristic aroma of Muscat. It is harvested from spring to autumn, but it is its spring (First Flush) and summer (Second Flush) harvests which are the most sought after for their exceptional taste characteristics. They are very different from each other.

The SFTGFOP1 grade (for Special Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe 1st quality) is the best place in the Indian classification of teas.
It designates a tea of exceptional quality composed of terminal buds of the tea plant in whole leaves (Pekoe, from the Chinese dialect of Xiamen "pek-ho" meaning "white flowers", in reference to the silky white of the buds) and whole buds which have become golden after fermentation (Golden Tippies). Orange means "royal", named after the Dutch Oranje Nassau dynasty, and denotes an imperial quality picking.
