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 organic Darjeeling First Flush is from one of the most prestigious organic tea estates in Darjeeling, established in 1885 by Buddhist Monks. This tea is the top grade of their harvest this year and is so good they've called it "Diamond". It contains a high concentration of furry white buds ("silver tips") which add an extra softness to the tea.

It has a light and refreshing flavour, with notes of fresh kiwi and a honey-like aftertaste.
