BADAMTAM TEA ESTATE
Established in 1858 by Mr Christine Barne, Badamtam is located in the west of Darjeeling’s Lebong Valley at an altitude of approx 300 to 1810 meters. Badamtam means water vessel made from bamboo. This tea estate is greatly renowned for its light and delicate China bushes, brisk and bright Assam hybrids. Connoisseurs consider the teas from Badamtam to be one of the best out of all the first flush teas. Their signature Badamtam Moonlight is finely plucked from a very small quantity of AV2, which is tenderly infused during processing. This tea stands out amongst the 1st flush teas of this year with its elegant earthy notes, vanilla finish and an extremely delicate citrusy flavor which lingers much after finishing the cup.
Dry leaf –
This Tea has a charming pollen and light new fruit fragrance. Dry leaf is a composition of connected buds and leaves. The big buds and small buds are both rich with a lot of white hair. The color is mainly silver and light olive. Very few black, or greenish-reddish leaves, the overall vision is yellow-green.
Looking at infusion plucking is extremely fine and tender; the color is yellow-green and light red. Both the picking and the color show a high uniformity. The aroma at the infusion is full of soft green grass and spicy scent. The aroma is long-lasting and unique.
The Liquor is clear and light yellow, when the tea is hot, fragrance of white flowers and green apples is prominent; it is delicate, light and refreshing white lily flowers. After the temperature of the liquor drops slightly, the lily flower scent becomes thick and has a slightly new fruity aroma, which is reminiscent of lemon. The aroma lingers in the mouth and the sweetness rises in this moment, when the temperature drops further, the body becomes thick and heavy, the unique fragrance of the AV-2 variety appears, and the taste is more sweet and juicy with the fusion of yellow lemon and white grapes have a pleasant and clean finish.
