TEA SEASON: DARJEELING SECOND FLUSH 2018
CERTIFIED ORGANIC - YES, It's an Organic Tea
Turzum and Sungma under the supervision of Mr. Jha, the Superintendent have emerged as one of the best Darjeeling Tea producing tea gardens. Lying just beside a small village area known as Pokhriabong, Turzum is most of the time covered in mist and fog with ample amount of rainfall. It falls under the category of tea gardens having higher altitudes. Normally due to its higher altitude, they tend to flush slower than the lower elevation tea gardens. Turzum mostly comprises of clonal bushes and most of the invoices processed are clonal varieties. Mr. Jha has excelled both in its overall structure of the tea garden and the quality of teas produced. After a long gap we are buying this Turzum from Second Flush as the quality of tea seems exponential. This year too we got some Himalayan Mystic with different invoices to taste, we liked this particular 'DJ 47' invoice. Other versions or invoices of this Turzum tea was equally good, just a few minor characteristics lacking in them made us choose this one. Hoping that you will enjoy it!
