TEA SEASON: DARJEELING SECOND FLUSH 2018
CERTIFIED ORGANIC - YES, It's an Organic Tea
We got to sample different Darjeeling tea garden 2018 Second Flush teas from the group Jayshree Tea Ltd. and this time Liza Hill's "Clonal Enigma" was one of the teas which won our hearts with its lovely full bodied cup and flavor. Liza Hill is a division of Risheehat tea Estate and the best clonals come from this division. Before 1963 Liza Hill was a completely different tea garden with its own factory, but later on it became a division of Risheehat and the teas from this division are marked separately as Liza Hill for its exclusive clonal varieties. Mr. Rajiv Kumar sampled us a lot of samples from both Risheehat and Liza Hill and we fell in love with this particular 2015 Second Flush tea. The best from a range of clonals we tasted was this particular invoice - LC-04. This is from a special section called "Bas Bari" where superior quality clones are grown. We bought it. Hope you like it.
Liza Hill tea Dry leaves:
The dry tea leaves are well rolled and twisted in nature. It has an overall chocolate brown appearance with abundance of silver tips showing sign of high quality manufacture with the preservation of good look and flavor. It is very sweet in nature with an overwhelming warm chocolate like aroma. The caramelic aroma comes packed with other complex fruity notes which results in a pleasing aroma that fills the mind with warmth and a longing for this tea. The nutty characteristics cannot be avoided here. This is a perfect example of a classic quality Darjeeling Second Flush tea.
Wet Tea leaves of this Liza Hill Tea:
This Liza Hill tea has an overall coppery infusion which seems even in nature. The mixture of light and dark brown leaves are bright with an inherent character of rich smell that is highly complex, leading more towards fruity and flowery characteristics. It also has light nutty aroma which is accompanied by a small degree of sweetness.
Liza Hill Tea cup or liqor:
It has a heavier strength compared to other clonals, but doesn't lack in briskness. Infact the brisk or lively taste is very much prominent. The cup tends towards reddish-orange color which can be tagged as coppery. Brewing this for a complete 5 minutes time can make this cup a bit bitter; try brewing for 3 minutes and try it. Of course you can try different time settings. It has mild biscuity taste with exceptional quality flavor or undertones of caramel, fruits and nuts. It is full bodied and mellow.
