Modi has further improved its processes during the past years.
In the past, the estate’s prestigious tea specialties have scored prices up to 3400 Indian Rupees per kg.

In that year, buyers were ready to pay up to $180.00 per 800g of the estate’s spring picking.
The autumn flushes, also called “autumnals”, today ever more often are referred to as the “lost treasure of Darjeeling”. But, actually, why “lost”? Well, if it comes to tea from Darjeeling (or Assam, for that matter), it’s usually all about first and second Flushes, i.e. the teas from the first and second spring harvest seasons. Later summer pickings, on the other hand – and even more the autumn flushes – used to wear a perceived labeling of low quality. Especially those “autumnals”, however, do not deserve this reputation in any way. Who doesn’t know this, hasn’t tried! And our Sree Sibbari Autumn Flush TGFOP 1 Assam 2016 has all it takes to convince any friend of black teas of the contrary.

It might not sound all too promising, when it’s said that the plants are exhausted, “tired” in autumn. But exactly this is wherein the autumnals’ unique potential and appeal lies. A veil of sweet mildness enwraps the teas of the autumn pickings like a pastel-amber-colored robe. New facettes come to surface, so far in the year overlayered by the sharper spices of spring and summer. And indeed, the taste of 2016’s Sri Sibbari Autumn Flush has much of the aroma and fragrance of autumn leaves, seasoned precious woods and rich, dark earth. These notes are carried by a mild omnipresent sweetness that melts all tastes involved into one delightful harmony.
