The blue scent of the grassland overlaps with the scent of daffodils and citrus flowers. Darjeeling tea that is like a collection of spring blessings from the Himalayas.
In mid-March when shining tea leaves come into bud in the field facing the valley along Balasun River, the long-awaited first flush season has come. When the leaves's greenish colour becomes olive-green in hot water, the poured water becomes lemon-yellow in the cup. When you drink, a clean and fruity taste and aromas of herbs, sometimes narcissus and citrus flowers are felt. Enjoy this fresh spring gift from the beautiful Balasun Tea Estate.

This year I was able to visit Darjeeling for the first time in a long time since the end of March, which was a little late this year. It's a brand name.
This year's first flush was a season with very little rainfall in most of the tea gardens, resulting in very low yields.
For that reason, the tea leaves can withstand dryness and grow slowly as if to store the aroma and taste, and I think that there were many high-quality lots.
The Barasun Tea Estate DJ-2 introduced this time is also a brand that offers a variety of unique scents, like a bouquet of white flowers blooming in spring.
It is recommended to enjoy the sweet taste that feels light in just 3 minutes for the first cup, and when it becomes thicker with repeated extractions, you can enjoy it with Japanese sweets and simple cookies.
On hot days ahead, be sure to try iced tea made with cold brew, which has a refreshing aftertaste.
It is a brand that allows you to fully enjoy the Himalayan spring.
