Niroulla Estate Smoked Spring Delight 1st Flush | Black Tea
Free Gift

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 Instruction:

Use 1 rounded tsp per 8oz water around 205°.  Steep 2-3 min.

Ingredients:

Indian black tea
