From La Via del Tè

Solely hand plucked it is regarded as the “champagne” among black teas. Darjeeling comes from the homonymous region in West Bengal, India, at the Himalayan foothills. Literally meaning “Land of the thunderbolts”, legends say to be originated from the scepter of Indra, God of rain. The letters tgfop state a top grade with apical buds, the most prized part of the tea plant. The infusion is slightly astringent with rich aroma of spices and muscatel grapes.

First tea of another large order of 10 teas I made over the Christmas period. I could buy teas from this Italian company in a private sale, which mainly means at more reasonable prices! as far as I know, I´ve never tried teas from this company but I thought their own blends sounded fascinating (and different from what I´m used to).
I also bought this Darjeeling, as I´m currently trying out some different origin Darjeelings (from different companies, that is) in replacement for a wonderful one I finished (and the tea company in UK called it a day as well, unfortunately). Enjoyable enough, but far less elegant than I what I expect from a Darjeeling TGFOP. I infused it twice with similar result.
