A grand finale for the year - the Autumn Darjeeling is full-bodied and mellow.
Made in early November from Glenburn's select clonal fields, their autumn Darjeeling tea has a rich copper glow, mirroring the evening sun on the snows of Mount Kanchenjunga in the shadows of which this tea is grown. It is full bodied and mellow, and has a delicate flowery bouquet with a long finish. The tea bushes give Glenburn Estate's Autumn Crescendo one grand finale at the end of the harvesting year and the taste lingers like a beautiful symphony that carries you into the next season.
Full-bodied and rounded with a smooth mouthfeel and notes of sweet berry fruit.

Glenburn Tea Estate, Darjeeling
A place where the magnificent peaks of the 3rd highest mountain in the world, Mount Kanchenjunga ascend over the tea bushes of Glenburn, - a name that literally means what this 750 hectare estate is - A River Valley.
There in hills of Darjeeling, tea rises out of the magical landscape imbibing the essence of the eternal Himalayas. In the peace and tranquility of Glenburn a flourishing community of people and tea bushes thrive together as they have done for the past 150 years.
