Okayti Golden Darjeeling

Our friend Antriksh has owned Okayti for as long as we can remember. Economic stress has made him innovate besides his great traditional Darjeelings. It is tough times in the mountains of Darjeeling. This is a very nice innovation. The golden tips are reminiscent of a great Assam from down in Brahmaputra valley. It has a nice body & sweetness. There are slight apricot notes. We think that Antriksh might be onto something with a delicious tea. Just remember that it is not a typical Darjeeling.
