ARYA DIAMOND 2014 FIRST FLUSH DARJEELING ORGANIC SEMI-OXIDIZED TEA
Infusion Time: 2 - 4 mins
Caffeine Level: High
SPRING 2014 HARVEST -- This Organic lightly oxidized tea was harvested in April 2014 and received the highest rating in its class: SFTGFOP1. The 2014 First Flush harvest was truly stellar, and our Arya Diamond is perhaps the best example of what makes this origin and flush, as well as this particular harvest, noteworthy. Small, muted tealeaves hold a bold aroma of parmesan-dusted popcorn and a pervasive green scent of springtime. The aroma of the golden yellow brew is sweetly floral (think honeysuckles and gardenias) and accented with green notes of menthol and d'Anjou pears. Clean flavors of eucalyptus, green pear, fresh flowers and dry pine needles evoke springtime, while a syrupy mouthfeel satiates the palate. Pair this rare tea with clean, crisp foods, such as jicama slaw, Waldorf salad or sliced honeydew.
