Located in Sonada Valley in Darjeeling, Oaks Estate is one of the oldest plantations in the region. Well known for its Chinary plants, it produces Orthodox Darjeeling Tea.
For the past two years we have purchased Second Flush teas from Oaks Estate. This lot, harvested April 2nd, 2018, is our first First Flush purchase from this renowned estate. Much more delicate and nuanced than its Second Flush counterpart, this tea boasts floral and citric aromas and veritably defines spring by virtue of its vibrancy and elegance.
