Description:

Exclusive collection of the youngest gardens in Darjeeling processed from fresh buds of cultivar AV2.

The golden infusion heady fragrance with notes of fruit, flowers lime and traces of peanuts. Sweet and smooth, balanced taste of ripe fruit with hints of grape which continues until lightly honeyed tones. The first breeze of spring in a cup of tea!

Garden Rohini is situated in a valley Kurseong and has an eventful history. It was closed for 30 long years from 1962 until 1994 when it was revived by family Saria, which it began again planted new bushes. It is now administered by the tea companies that are also responsible for management of garden Gopaldhara.

Only about 28 hectares from the current 138 to the garden is available from the original planting shrubs, and many of them are still young. The garden is divided into four sections. The lower level has Jaberhat about 24 ha. Intermediate levels Kotidhara and Pailodhora together have approximately 76 ha are planted mostly by clones AV2 and T-78 and produce high quality tea. The highest level Tukuriya is located at an average altitude of 1300m above sea level and extends to the town of Kurseong. Tea tree of the oldest parts are over 100 years old.

Tea occupies a lot of space in the bag. Incredulous, I put the bag on the scale, if there's really only 50 grams. Leaves smells nicely as spring. Color of infusion is a bright yellow-brown. The taste is light and fruity with a delicate hint of citruses. In the aftertaste, you can feel soft sparkling and astringency on the tongue.
The tea has nice and refreshing energy.
Very good tea. 50 g for $14.

I used cooler water about 90-95°C.

Quotes

„If you let go of things, your body is not stressed; if you contrive no artificiality, your mind is naturally at peace. Serenity and lightness develop day by day, while involvement in objects grows thinner day by day. Your actions become further and further from mundanity, while your mind becomes closer and closer to the Way.“
