From the oldest organic garden in Nepal, this Himalayan high-grown tea from the verdant hills of Dhankuta in Eastern Nepal has the distinct "greenness" of Darjeeling but is mellower in delivery.
Aromatic, gentle floral notes with a touch of desirable astringency makes this 2nd Flush gem a most pleasant afternoon tea.
