First planted in 1864, the lush green Tukdah estate in the Teesta Valley was the legendary home to as many tigers as blades of grass. Today, the marvellous teas are harvested at elevations of 800 to 2,000 metres, and boast a uniquely smooth and suave strength. Beautiful, finely rolled, sap-green leaves with silver-green tips exude a remarkable fragrance of ripe peach and banana. With a translucent, amber-coloured infusion, this tea is aromatic in flavour and delivers a cup that is racy and vivacious with a short finish and subtle bite. A dazzling afternoon tea.
