Darjeeling First Flush|大吉嶺春摘茶

 Tasting notes: Brisk, white grape, chrysanthemum
 Origin: Darjeeling, India
 Cultivar: AV2 clonal

 Elevation: 2060m
 Oxidation: ⦿⦿⦿○○

Made from only the finest new shoots harvested in the early onset of spring, our Darjeeling First Flush has an abundance of silver tips (buds) and is much less oxidised ('greener') than most black teas.

Grown in the pure, crisp air of the Himalayas, this tea is often called the “Champagne of Teas” for its muscatel, white grape flavour, with undertones of chrysanthemum.

This batch, harvested in the spring of 2022, is crisp and refreshing with beautiful green leaves exhibiting grassy and light grape flavour notes.

Darjeeling First Flush is a lightly oxidised tea with a high proportion of delicate buds, so we recommend brewing it at between 85°C and 90°C.

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
