Ging Estate First Flush FTGFOP1 (2019) Darjeeling

4 star average rating
1 Reviews Write a Review
This 2019 first flush selection comes from the Ging Estate, located in the Lebong Valley of Darjeeling. Ging is a Lepcha word meaning “the outstretched slopes.” The aroma is mellow with a whisper of fresh corn silk. The amber-gold cup is light and refreshing with smooth, buttery hints, complemented by a sparkling, effervescent quality. Nuances of tropical fruit linger in the bright finish.

  • In the bag, the vegetal aroma is muted as if the grass had been mowed the day before. The gold to light amber soup has something fruity and sub-citrus in the nose, and leaves lightly bitter tannins that are not at all astringent on the palate. Huigan (throat aftertaste) is mild, a simple echo of the tannins. For the money, this as a real nice tea.
