Description:

The legend among tea cultivators Mr. J. D. Rai, the main teamaker of famous Thurbo gardens produced limited quantity of tea made from leaves harvested exclusively from the tea plant cultivar Pb 312. This delicious tea is composed purely of silver tips and the top two leaves. The infusion is clear, golden with dominant fruity tones that are typical for the cultivar Pb312. Really wonderful tea!

Beautiful Darjeeling

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

The tea consists of brown leaves, silver tips and partly green leaves. Wet leaves smell fruity with a delicate aroma of marmalade. The infusion is light, yellow-brown. The taste is fresh and fruity with a slight hint of citrus. This is really beautiful FF DJ, worth of testing if you can get it. 50 grams per $14.

Gaiwan 170 ml, 4 g, 90 ° C - 60/70/80/90/100 depends on a taste. Even longer steeping is producing nice infusion w/o bitterness.

Very interesting FF DJ. Wet leaf smells really nice. I boiled the water on chaozhou stove. It beautifully highlighted fresh, floral flavor of the tea. Really excellent tea, probably the best FF I've yet tasted.
