A rare batch of organically grown highland Darjeeling second flush, grown at an altitude of 5500ft above sea level. The dried leaves are high fired and tightly rolled to produce a matured muscatel aroma. The liquor starts clean, bright followed by notes of floral muscat grapes, warm spice and sugary squash.

    One of my favorite second flush Darjeeling so far. I like the muscatel undertones with a deep over firing kind of feeling.

    A beautiful toasty aroma and flavour with quite a bit of sweet cocoa flavour too. Very smooth.

About the Chota Poobong, Darjeeling

The small bio-organic tea garden in Chota Poobong is situated in the mystical hills of the Himalayas, surrounded by a beautiful tea garden in the south and a magnificent reserve forest area with diverse flora and fauna towards the north. In 2000 an ardent tea lover Bikram Niroula from Chota Pubung initiated and planted the first Camellia Sinensis in a small area absolutely in a bio-organic way as a hobby straight from the heart. His devotion and fascination for high-grade quality tea grew instantly. His small tea farm nurtured carefully hand-grown finest tea crafted with sheer love and joy for pure organic tea. Tea growers were deprived of getting benefit under the terms and conditions of big tea gardens due to the absence of the factory of their own and they were bargained and deprived of the real price of the green tea leaves. He and his group of small farmer’s relentless pleading and negotiation with major tea gardens players continued for better pricing of tea leaves failed time and again. In 2014 Bhawesh, a young dynamic entrepreneur and present owner, realised the importance to cater the finest high grade quality of Darjeeling tea to the world and his foresightedness saw the potential that this small farm had. Thus following his father’s footsteps he realised that the magic of Camellia Sinensis and moved further ahead and started an indigenous mini tea processing unit in Darjeeling. We have been working very closely with Bhawesh to produce some of the finest organically grown Darjeeling teas.
