Origin: North Kurseong, West Bengal, Darjeeling, India
Flavor: bright, dried fruit, grain
A brilliant second-flush Darjeeling that brews an amber, medium-bodied cup. The flavor is bright up front but complex, with notes of grain, nuts, and dried apricot with a crisp, clean finish. It is slightly astringent and makes an excellent afternoon tea - classy and classic.
About 60 miles from Mount Kangchenjunga (the third tallest peak in the world), this estate exclusively produces organic and biodynamic teas in addition to having a strong social commitment to their employees. It was established in 1861 and the name comes from the Lepcha word "am-butia" which means "mango grove".
