Rohini Jethikupi Early White FF Darjeeling 2016 cultivar BB157 picking (EX-1) January 28, 2016 in Darjeeling, India. The First Flush Tea from Darjeeling is extremely early this year. Whether it's a super "El Ninjo", a widely feared natural phenomenon, or global climate change, the fact is that in India the first tea of 2016 from Darjeeling has already picked the end of January! Normally this tea is harvested between late February and mid-April.
The Rohini tea garden used the Jethikupi parcel to produce a beautiful white tea, this means that the leaves are dried slowly in cold air and then no longer be heated or be put in shape, so actually the tea is RAW! The tea tastes vibrant, velvety, with a hint of exotic freesia.
