Product Description

This Jungpana FTGFOP-1 Clonal Darjeeling 2014 Second Flush Organic Tea has bright coppery leaves that are well-rolled with about 40% golden tips for a tea that is as attractive as it is flavorful. The liquid in the cup is a bright amber and has a floral and muscatel flavor with almost no astringency from first sip to last. This is a limited edition tea from a 100+ years old garden that has survived the changes the region has seen politically and otherwise.

Dry Leaves: bright coppery color, well-rolled shape, generous portion of golden tips

Liquid: bright amber color, sweetly floral and muscatel aroma

Steeping Instructions:

Use fresh water heated to 185°F. Use 1 teaspoon of dry tea per 8-ounce cup in the pot. Infuse 2 minutes, adding 15 seconds to each subsequent infusion. Leaves can be infused 3 times or more, depending on your taste. (For a stronger flavor use a higher water temperature and/or a longer steeping time.)

About the Jungpana Tea Garden

Jungpana Tea Garden is one of the smaller tea estates in the Darjeeling area of West Bengal in northern India. It is at an elevation of 3,000-4,500ft.and has been growing and producing what many call vintage Darjeeling teas famous for their muscatel flavor for around 100 years. It was originally planted by a British tea planter named Henry Lennox in 1899, then passed to the Ranas of Nepal (a neighboring country), and then to the Kejriwal family in 1953 who still own it today.

Getting the tea from the garden to market is quite an undertaking, since they have to be toted down the mountain-side by workers (a bridge and mule train were washed away by landslides in 1993). But you’ll be glad they made that trek. The teas from this estate have a distinct flavor attributed to their micro-climate (they are on the south side of a mountain in the foothills of the Himalayas). Their tea bushes are pure Chinese jats, and they use manufacturing techniques that produce the finest rich flavor and bouquet for which Darjeeling teas claim the name “the champagne of teas.”

All of our Darjeeling teas have the Darjeeling Tea Protected Origin Status
