Peregrine Mountain 1st Flush


An exquisite 1st Flush black tea from the mountains of Yunnan (China), the birthplace of tea. Legend claims a young boy found a Peregrine Falcon, trapped in a snare laid by a local warlord. The bird spoke to the boy and promised if he set him free, he would lead him to a field of undiscovered tea. The boy duly set the Peregrine free and the bird led him to the field of tea, from which this rare tea is picked in the spring. The long, neat leaves have an abundance of golden buds. Expect dark raisin, plum, and caramel notes, a smooth body like silk, and a sweet aroma. I would recommend tasting without milk, but this tea is strong enough to add milk if you prefer.

"A beautiful leaf produces an interesting maple colour to the infusion. Wonderful aroma and characteristic, gentle Yunnan flavour. An easy drinker, delicate and well balanced."Great Taste Awards 2019 (2 Stars)
