DARJEELING NURBONG AF 2008

DA 010

Nurbong lies in an area called Kurseong (Darjeeling, West Bengali). Thanks to its placement they produce very good first flush there. And in the autumn they can prolong the flush long after the other gardens end. The word „Nurbong" comes from the Lepcha lanuage. „Nur" is a name of the plant they used in history for its healing effects (the brew was used to conqer an influenza). "Bong" means "the tree". This tea with convoluted, clear, dark leaves features strong, characteristic and full flavour. Colour of the brew is pale and bright.
