Niroulla Estate Smoked Spring Delight 1st Flush | Black Tea
This 2017 first flush Darjeeling is lightly smoked during processing, giving it a unique toasty quality - not typical of first flushes. The steeped cup has nice weight, bright notes, and a classic astringent finish. This is a perfect tea to sip as summer winds down into fall.
Niroulla is one of the youngest and smallest of all Darjeeling tea gardens. It was founded in 2000 as a micro-tea garden in southern Darjeeling. They focus on hand-made, super high-quality teas. They are very proud that they are one of the few Darjeeling tea gardens owned by local folk from the indigenous population.
Suggested Steeping Instructions:
