No. 72, Badamtam Darjeeling 1st Flush Clonal

Located in the Lebong Valley, the Badamtam Estate was founded over 150 years ago. This heady and seductive organic tea is full bodied and has layers of flavor, with notes of muscatel, dates, spice, and rose. The leaf's downiness gives the tea a lighter appearance than most first flushes.
