Giddapahar Estate, 2nd Flush, SFTGFOP1 | Black Tea
There is lots of body in this 2nd flush Darjeeling black tea. It is very aromatic, reminiscent of dark fruits-plums or pomegranates with just a hint of a first flush crispness.
Giddapahar is the smallest tea garden in Darjeeling. It is a fourth generation family owned tea company, still owned and operated by the Shaw family. It is located near Kuresong, Darjeeling District at between 4500-5500' elevation. Giddapahar is small enough that the two brothers operating the garden literally get their hands on every lot of tea the garden produces.
Suggested Steeping Instruction:
