Poobong Estate, 1st Flush, FTGFOP1 | Black Tea
This is a great traditional first flush Darjeeling tea. As such, there is a little bit of green in the dry leaf. The cup is wonderfully balanced, aromatic, slightly crisp, and has a little bit of stone-fruit. It lingers nicely.
Poobong is one of the smaller Darjeeling tea estates and is located in NW Darjeeling near the town of Ghoom. Poobong tea plants are almost all descendants of China tea cultivars and are noted for producing particularly nice early (1st Flush) teas.
