Our decadent First Flush Darjeeling 2016 is hand-picked from the Thurbo Tea Estate from the very first harvest after the spring rains in Darjeeling.
Grown under the shadow of Kanchenjunga in the Himalayas, this lush and tippy black tea has a wonderful aroma, slightly reminiscent of apricot. When brewed you can expect a clear, gold liquor with a fresh, lightly astringent and well balanced flavour. Highly sought-after and exclusive, our First Flush Darjeeling truly deserves its moniker of the “Champagne of Teas”.
Leaf Grade: FTGFOP1 Ch
(Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe)
