Detail
A lovely fresh tea, fruity to start, with camphorous, vegetal, floral notes typical of first-flush pluckings.

The Namring Tea Estate in Darjeeling dates back to 1855, when the British first planted high quality Chinese tea bushes grown from seeds. This estate is one of the largest in India, covering more than 475 hectares. Namring Tea Garden is located at an altitude of 1400 metres.


François-Xavier Delmas' choice:
“The Namring Upper plantation is located in a magnificent valley, a two-hour jeep ride from the city of Darjeeling. The region is so humid, and this valley so deep, that on fine days you can see the water evaporating and forming clouds that rise straight up from the jungle.”
