Darjeeling First Flush refers to the first spring harvest of teas grown in 87 certified tea estates in Darjeeling, made of the soft leaves newly grown after winter. Even though the tea is harvested at similar times and processed in similar ways, the teas from each estate taste different.

It's often called the "Champagne of tea" due to its delicate qualities and distinctive muscatel flavour.

Even though it is called a "black tea" in India, it is lightly oxidised, so tastes more similar to a green or white tea.

This Darjeeling First Flush is from Glenburn Tea Estate, where we source most of our Darjeeling teas from. The estate was established in 1859 on the banks of the River Rungeet.

The First Flush is harvested by the best tea pickers, as the leaves are extra delicate. The tea has a pleasant aroma of pine leaves with a flavour reminiscent of dried apricots and honey.
