Review of Tea:Darjeeling Turbo Tippy Clonal ftgfop-1 Dj 186 2nd flush 2013

Thurbo Darjeeling Tea Estate: Thurbo is a very famous name when it comes to Darjeeling Tea. As with most Darjeeling tea gardens, there is a unique story behind its name which is based on a historic event. The British set up a camp in this estate to invade Nepal. The word camp is known as 'Tombu' in local dialect and hence over the years the name has become Thurbo.

The hills and peaks of Nepal are visible from here as it is located in the shadow of the mighty Kanchenjunga. Small streams and rivulets mark its boundaries and the Mechi and Rangbang gurgle down to the plans with orange orchards and orchid farms lending an exotic charm to the tea. Thurbo's indigenous clonal teas have unique character, which when combined with other 'jats' like P316 & AV2 grow matchless autumnal teas. The teas imbue a rare and delicate fragrance. Its China hybrid is bright and flavorful and the Assam hybrids are both round and sweet.
