A limited-edition Darjeeling Autumn flush produced from frosted leaves from the best clone of Darjeeling teas known as AV2. It is a rare special as not many bushes of AV2 can be found at these high peaks. Extreme cold weather conditions, which in the night can touch 0 degrees at the high elevations of Gopaldhara, induce special and complex flavour of ripe fruits into the tea. The tea brews into a bright orange cup with a very rich character and full rounded and dense fruity flavour. The aftertaste is very clean and sweet with a prominent finish of honey.

1 heaping teaspoon tea leaves for every cup of water.

Use water at 190 degrees

Steep 3 minutes.  We recommend tasting your brew at 2 minutes, and then allowing another minute if you wish.  Do not go over 3 minutes! 

Strain, sip, and enjoy one of the finest teas of the year!
