Organic black tea Darjeeling Treasure Gold Tippy Okayti 2020 DE-ÖKO-003

Item No. 10480-1
Package Unit: 1 bag à 1 kg

The Okayti Tea Estate lies in the Mirik Valley, right on the border to Nepal at an altitude of 1,500 m and this is where first-class organic teas are produced. At first glance, however, it becomes clear that “Treasure Gold” is not an “ordinary” Darjeeling, as the long, wiry leaves with many golden tips are more reminiscent of high-quality Yunnan teas. After the infusion the cup has a brassy glow and the infusion shows the careful “one leaf and a bud” plucking. The palate then reveals incredibly multi-faceted notes of chocolate and caramel, combined with a light malt character and a profound fruitiness reminiscent of ripe grapes. This quality rightly bears the name “Treasure”!
