Our first flush Namring Darjeeling is deliciously complex. The leaf is wiry and blackish with some tips. Some green flecks are visible on the smaller tea leaves, indicating the first flush of tea picked, or spring flush. The cup is bright with a smooth and flowery bouquet, lively character, clean flavor and distinctive mellowness which this estate is known for. Primarily floral in both liquor and aroma, one can also discern a soft fruity-nutty undertone. This tea is best enjoyed early in the afternoon and never with milk or sugar.

Cradled in the foothills of the snow-covered Himalayan range, the Namring Tea Estate in Darjeeling, India dates back to 1855, when the British first planted high-quality Chinese tea bushes. This estate is one of the largest in India, covering more than 475.72 hectares. The Darjeeling teas that come from this garden fetch top prices due to their supreme quality.

The combination of the wet and cool climate, the rich and fertile soil, the incessant rainfall and the gradually sloping terrain gives the tea a matchless and unique "muscatel" flavor. Known as the champagne of teas, the taste of Darjeeling varies with the seasons. Darjeeling first flush, or springtime tea, is harvested from late February to mid-April. The young leaves yield a light tea with a flavor of green muscat.

This Darjeeling Makes An Extra Pot

I drink tea everyday at work and I steep the leaves of this tea a second time while the pot is remaining hot over the tea candle. I am a teacher and this tea is fortifying to me. It is a strong Darjeeling. Namring Darjeeling Tea really makes an extra pot that I share with my fellow colleague and tea lover!! This is the tea we enjoy the most. It is a complex Tea and is a bit astringent, but am careful not to boil my tea water when I make this tea. The taste is better when the water only simmers. I think any tea lover should get to know the Namring Darjeeling.

Delicious

He likes Oolong. She likes Darjeeling. Both very much like Assam. Well rounded flavor, deeper than darjeeling, not as fragrant as darjeeling, but very satisfying.

Darjeeling Delight

Namring Estate Darjeeling Black Tea is a delight for ordinary tea drinkers who like something more distinctive that English Breakfast Tea. The flavor of a brew of these first flush tea leaves will wake up your taste buds and have them calling for another cup. I gave my son who resides in the frozen northland and drinks tea every day a 100g package for Christmas with my hearty recommendation. Enjoy!
