DJ 44/20
Tasting Notes These teas were plucked on 5th June, which was incidentally a full moon night, when the lunar energy was at its peak, vitalising the plant and bushes properties. Meticulously manufactured under biodynamic agricultural practices - harnessing the lunar and cosmic energy, these clonal tippy teas have a light golden-hued, clean cup with a luscious and well-rounded mouthfeel. With a mingling of floral notes teasing and twining distinct nuances of citrus fruits, honey and dry-fruits, these selective teas should ideally be enjoyed in their purest form - without milk or sugar.
