Darjeeling First Flush

Tea Chest Hawaii


This Darjeeling is made from plants growing between 3000-6000 feet above sea level.  The cup is balanced with a bright yet smooth finish.  The tea is lightly oxidized with abundant notes of mint and fresh pine that complement the recognizable muscatel flavor.
