In Darjeeling, winter is the time for all tea plants to rest. Come spring, little leaf buds begin to appear and open amidst a flurry of activity. From these leaves, comes the famous Darjeeling First Flush tea, tea from the first harvest of the season.
This is an exceptional first flush tea from one of the premium high altitude tea estates in Darjeeling. This is a black tea that has been lightly fermented, resulting in a greener, more delicate brew. It has a mild astringency, boasting flavours of peach and flowers with slightly earthy undertones.
