    Stunningly good

    A newcomer to Darjeeling, I wasn't sure that this competition winner could compete with the other excellent first flush teas on offer. There is, however, something so light and yet richly satisfying about this clear golden cup, that I shall definitely be buying it again. Strawberry, forest fruit aromas and a fresh, fruity palate with incredible depth of flavour. Wonderful.
