Avongrove Emperor Darjeeling First Flush Organic White Tea

 

Avongrove Emperor Darjeeling First Flush Organic White Tea

A lovely Darjeeling white tea which lives up to the mark. The loosely rolled leaves has abundant tips holding the promise of a good tea. Once infused the tea gives out a heady vegal scent with a trailing hint of citrus. The brew itself is an absolute delight to behold. A pale cup, it is a mouthful of geranium and lavender flavours with hints of fennel and sweet greens. You can savour the juicy mango flavour flooding in the nose that makes way for the the robust mix of geranium, lavender and citrus in the palate and ends on a polished note of lavender which heightens in the next steep. 
This is a cup that a true blue Darjeeling lover desires. Infallibly flavourful and an impeccable crisp taste. 
Best accompaniment to this tea is a serving of fresh fruit, camembert, crepes and/or scrambled eggs.
