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! (FTGFOP-1), lot no. Dj-16/13

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

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.

Quotes

„cha qi; 茶气 - Tea nature. The inherent energetic qualities in tea. That which makes it tea. Sometimes rather unsatisfactorily interpreted as 'tea energy'; translating qi as energy suggests perhaps a rather too narrow idea of qi but it is an interesting term to consider since many people use the term. Ideas and experiences of cha qi vary considerably; the taste of tea, the appearance of the leaves (particularly after steeping i.e. the life in the tea), any physical or psychological experiences one may have as a result of drinking tea are all aspects of cha qi. One cannot satisfactorily dissociate one from the other just as one cannot isolate sunshine from wind, which are both manifestations of weather, tian qi. If it did not have cha qi it wouldn't be tea, it would be something else. From a western point of view perhaps, cha qi is due, in some good part, to the presence of caffeine, theine, etc. The active constituents.“
