This first flush spring tea is a traditional Darjeeling with a little green in the leaf. The leaves come from the Poobong estate, whose name means "a valley behind the clouds". This small tea garden produces some of the finest tea in the world. Yields a wonderfully balanced up. Aromatic, a little crisp with slight stone-fruit flavors. FTGFOP1
