1st Flush Darjeeling

Indian Black Tea

Darjeeling, once a British hill station, is known for producing some of the world’s most prized and expensive teas. The high elevation of Dajeeling tea gardens puts stress on the bushes and results in teas of exceptionally nuanced flavor. Less oxidized compared to later flushes, first flushes are lighter in body and greenish in color, with notes muscatel grape, burnt sugar and sage.

Darjeeling

Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India, the Darjeeling region is home to 87 tea gardens. First flush begins in late March and lasts about 30 days, during which time each bush is plucked every seven days.
