Castleton 1st Flush SFTGFOP1 | Black Tea
Description: A great, classic 1st flush Darjeeling. The steeped cup is light to medium-bodied and a little on the sweet side (a bare hint of astringency) with noticeable fruity/muscatel notes.
Castleton is one of the most famous of all Darjeeling tea gardens. Justifiably so, its teas are always among the best. Founded in 1885 in the Kuresong District in central Darjeeling, its tea bushes are mostly descendants of Chinese tea bushes. Castleton teas are almost all orthodox and handmade.
