A fresh and full-flavoured first flush Darjeeling with a bouquet of scented spiciness. Darjeelings have a complex, nutty flavour often compared to Muscat grapes.

The Soom Estate is one of the oldest tea estates in the Darjeeling area and is about 1600 metres above sea level. First flush Darjeeling, harvested around March, is affected by the winter frosts of the Himalayan foothills. As we show in this video, these freeze parts of the leaf, arresting the production of tannin. The result is a unique light and complex flavour.

TGBOP stands for 'tippy golden broken orange pekoe', which is the finest grade of broken leaf tea.
