Description

This batch comes from tea plants on the Delmas Bari plot. A refined and refreshing tea with notes of rose, citrus zest, and grass ending melting into a delicate sweet-tart flavor.

Situated in Darjeeling on a plot on the North Tukvar low-altitude plantation, the Delmas Bari garden, named after the founder of Palais des Thés, was planted on 18 March 2006. In the best season, the plantation produces a remarkable tea thanks to the planter's expertise as well as the quality of tea plants. The planter, G. Somani, has been working with Palais des Thés for many years, and is one of the best in Darjeeling.
