Arya Diamond Darjeeling Dry Leaves:
According to Mr. Roy, this tea has been made from specially plucked AV2 clonal tea leaves having just one leaf and a bud. It is picked from the finest clonal growing section of Arya. A lot of labor has been put by the women tea pickers of Arya Tea Estate and thanks to them for making this tea possible. This Arya Diamond tea has an overall attractive bloom which are fairly larger in size than the normal classic graded Darjeeling teas. It has elongated leaves, wiry with dark yellowish and chocolate brown color. There is abundance of silver and golden tips, quite remarkably handled during processing. The yellowish color are mainly that of the golden buds. It has a rich smell which seemingly bears similarity to that of a complex mixture of chocolate, mint and fresh fruits. The nutty/almondy aroma is also worth mentioning here.
Arya Diamond Tea Infusion or Wet Leaves:
The infused leaves beautifully opens up and occupies quite a space on the inverted lid of the tea tasting cup. The infused leaf size depicts the original size of the tea leaf. This Arya Diamond Darjeeling has a lively brown/coppery overall infusion with the golden and silver tips/buds turning pale yellow in color. One leaf and a bud is quite visible. It has a sweet fragrance with slight hints of lemon. It also has a nutty character which comes coated with the complexity of different fruits.

Arya Diamond Darjeeling Tea Cup or Liqor:
It has quite a full bodied cup, turning dark reddish in color. Classic Darjeelings always bear that tiny size china styled leaves while opposed to it, this tea has a light and bright golden/red brew. The tea is brisk and an instant sweetness fills the mouth while sipping. It also lends a nutty character with some complex undertones of fruitiness, reminiscent of ripe apples and pineapple.
