Single Estate Black Teas

Organic First Flush Darjeeling Monteviot 2020


The Champagne of Tea

First Flush Darjeeling 2020 is of exceptional quality from the Monteviot Tea Garden. It was founded in 1856 in the southern Kurseong valley of Darjeeling.

When infused; it has a beautiful, clear amber liquor with a distinctive floral aroma. This adds depth to the more delicate muscatel top notes which, we know to be typical of an outstanding First Flush Darjeeling. The tasting notes of this tea are; A bright cup, slightly grassy, fresh and yet surprisingly full at the finish; its wonderful unique character and well-rounded profile explains its universal appeal and unprecedented demand.

Leaf Grade: FTGFOP1
(Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe)

Due to shutdowns the supply of first class Darjeelings are very limited this year. However the growing conditions were almost ideal with sufficient rain and warmth in the weeks before harvest making the quality excellent.

Please note that it is very important that this tea is not brewed like your traditional black teas. 

Allow one teaspoon per cup. Switch the kettle off just before it boils or, after boiling allow it to cool for five minutes, ideally down to 85 degrees, before infusing for 3 minutes. Best enjoyed without milk.
