Darjeeling SFTGFOP1 2nd flush "Castleton"

Top quality 2nd flush Darjeeling with a very even, fine tippy leaf and a brisk flavorful cup. Although "Castleton" tea garden was named such because of a building in Kurseong (a sub-division of Darjeeling) that resembled a castle, now "Castleton" is synonymous to quality Darjeeling tea. The quality of this tea is exactly what one would expect from a "Castleton".

Caffeine content is High.
Brew Instructions: 1 tsp, 2-3 minutes, 100° Celsius

Ωραία, λεπτή γεύση. Μυρωδιά περίεργη, κάπως σαν βραστό χόρτο. Όμορφη επίγευση.

Castleton being one of the infamous tea estates, produced as usual an exquisite, highly aromatic Special Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (SFTGFOP) tea. A much sought-after, supreme whole leaf grade containing a particularly high content of delicate golden-orange "tips". The higher the content of tips, the higher the quality so that it can qualify as SFTGFOP. Exceptional Spring harvest second flush Darjeeling, which has an unmistakeably fruity note. It is one of the finest in its category.

Μου άρεσε η γεύση του αλλά μου φάνηκε λίγο βαρύ για τα γούστα μου γιατί πίνω περισσότερο πράσινο τσάι.

Did You Know...

After Dr. Campbell planted the first tea bushes at Beechwood in 1847 and established the first economically viable tea gardens in 1852 ? Tukvar, Steinthal and Aloobari ? the number of tea gardens continued to grow until there were no less than 113 of them by the year 1874. Today, during the high season and depending on the weather, up to 65,000 workers produce an average of 10 ? 11 million kilos of Darjeeling tea from 86 tea gardens in an area of approximately 19,000 hectares.
