From Camellia Sinensis

This world class tea garden bestows upon us this heavenly clonal First Flush delight. This lot, composed of large leaves and curled buds, is typical of modern aesthetics. It’s light and spacious liquor ranges from scents of herbs and flowers (wild spring flowers) to supple notes of peach and muscatel. A perfect example of pure AV2 cultivar and the glory of young tea plants in the Himalayan soil.

Cultivar: AV2
Producer: M. Rai
Altitude: 1900m
Date of harvest: April 1, 2020

Am a fan. Sample of this from VariaTEA and it’s delicious and exactly what i wanted on this cooler/rainy day. It IS like white rhino but slightly different. May be worth picking some up from Camelia… hmmm thanks lady!

Courtney

Sil

Another awesome sample from VariaTEA!

I think I’ve chosen the right tea for this note…this tea is super tasty! This is my second steep and it’s creamy and hay-like and I love that. I reminds me a little bit of my beloved white Rhino. Maybe first flush Darjeelings can be a thing for me?

First steep 3 minutes
Second steep 4 minutes

Thanks for sharing VariaTEA :)

I’m glad you liked it! I was surprised I liked it as much as I did. Btw, have you ever tried What-Cha’s White Rhino? Mine was from an old harvest but I recall enjoying it a lot

Courtney

There exists another White Rhino?! My night has been made! I am going to check it out right now!

From yesterday’s #SeptemberSipdown prompt…

The prompt was to drink a tea sourced from India, and my first thought was that I definitely had options but nothing I was super excited about – and then I remember I had this fucking INCREDIBLE Darjeeling that I could make! So I had a cup of this for the prompt, and just marveled in the delicious fresh and sweet Spring florals and sugar snap pea flavours that took me back to crisp and cool summer mornings helping my Grandma in her garden after an evening thunderstorm. So nostalgic!

Yes, the Thurbo Darjeeling from Camellia Sinensis is always fantastic! I tried to get some during this year’s sale, but it was all snapped up.
