Summer-picked Darjeeling with a sweet, soft texture and a pleasant muscatel flavor that leaves a pleasant lingering finish.
Plucked in early summer, this fine Darjeeling second flush tea comes from Puttabong Tea Estate, one of the oldest and the most extensive tea gardens in the area. When hot water is poured on these small chocolate coloured leaves with many silver tips, they turn the water colour to beautiful sepia. When you drink, this tea tastes sweet and mild with a lingering muscatel flavour.

Puttabong, one of Darjeeling's oldest tea Estates
Among the many tea gardens in Darjeeling, Phuttabong Tea Estate (Tukba Tea Estate) is one of the oldest tea gardens founded in 1860. With an area of 436 hectares, it is one of the largest tea gardens in the Darjeeling area. It is said that the name was derived from the Lepcha word, which means fish hook, because the grounds of the tea garden are shaped like hooks. This is a tea garden that has introduced bio-organic farming methods since 2009. The tea estate is mainly planted with Chinese hybrids, which is one of the important elements that create the unique taste of this tea estate.
