According to Tea Swan…Poobong Black Tea is organic production (that began) several years ago and now produces characteristic, expressive teas. They also state on their website that Poobong Black Tea picking is floral and delicate and says it’s perfect for a late afternoon break. I tend to agree.
The leaves offer a sunny yellow brew and the flavor is light and refreshing, with beautiful notes of peach and legume with soft, smooth, velvety notes and a slightly sweet, citrusy finish.
If you are into tea pairings – they also say it’s an perfect accompaniment for desserts or fruit parfaits.
The tea itself hails from the Darjeeling Region and the leaf type is a hand plucked, whole leaf. The tea I’m sampling is the 2017 – First Flush. And I’m actually just finishing up my personal stash of this wonderful brew. I will surely miss it when it’s gone. It’s memorable, that’s for sure!
