Thurbo Estate, Darjeeling-First Flush 2017 from Yatra Tea Company. . . .

Thurbo Estate Darjeeling Black Tea is the first tea I have tried from this company. The company I’m writing about today is Yatra Tea Company. As stated this is a stand alone, straight-up, natural black tea. It was harvested in April of 2017 and it’s absolutely delightful! The estate this tea hails from is Thurbo Estate.

Thurbo has flourished in the idyllic Mirik Valley in Darjeeling since 1872. The combination of premium China and Assam hybrids, strewn across the almost 450 hectares of growing area, with the indigenous varietal, results in a remarkable tea with unique character. Coupled with the typical climate of a hilly area – cooler temperature and diffused sunlight – the result is truly unparalleled.

My personal method of steeping for this tea was a little over a tablespoon of the loose leaf in an over-sized mug and I infused the lovely leaves for about 3 minutes.

I agree with the company’s product description that this tea gives off a light golden liquor, sweet aroma, and has a smooth, balanced, fruity floral flavor. I highly recommend this tea!


Here’s the scoop!
