This is an exceptional 1st flush Darjeeling tea directly from India. The first flush refers to the first picking of the year. They are comprised of the first leaves that appear in spring after a period of dormancy during the Himalayan winter. These first teas of the season are the finest.
The infusion is bright golden-amber and the aroma and flavour are sweet-floral with an elegant briskness and lingering aftertaste. First, flush Darjeeling is a very pleasant mild astringency, and truly “champagne-like” aroma, make it a must-try for any Darjeeling lover.
Most of us are familiar with Darjeeling Tea, but few have tasted an authentic Darjeeling Tea. We give you the opportunity to shop real first flush Darjeeling directly from the source i.e. India as we reside in India. It has all the characteristics you look for in a first flush: striking aroma, some fruity muscatel notes, a little astringency, and a beautiful fresh taste to the cup.
The first “flushes” (pluckings) are thought to produce the best Darjeeling vintage but all crops are of very high quality. The first flush is similar to green tea.
As with green tea, this tea is drunk without milk and sugar. This is really a lovely First flush Darjeeling Indian black tea. It is an ideal complement to dinner or afternoon tea.
