Glenburn Estate Spring Wulong Tea is from the famous tea-producing Darjeeling Region in the foothills of the Himalayas in the state of West Bengal in northeastern India. Established around 1859, the 1600-acre estate is located at about 3,200 feet and is planted with the Camellia sinensis sinensis variety of the tea plant. The garden uses sustainable agricultural practices and is a member of the Ethical Tea Partnership, a tea-specific fair trade organization. As such, it provides living and working conditions that exceed those required by Indian law, a hospital and schools for the workers’ children.
Spring-harvested tea that is plucked during the first flush in March. Curly leaves and downy buds have been lightly-oxidized to yield a lively, delicate, balanced, smooth, clean, light-bodied infusion with a full flavor and fresh, sweet, and floral notes.
