DARJEELING FIRST FLUSH, 2023

1.0 oz
$7.50
Giddapahar Tea Estate 2023

DESCRIPTION

  • Darjeeling First Flush is a premium tea harvested during the first picking season of the year, usually between late February and early April. It is considered to be one of the most sought-after teas in the world, known for its delicate and nuanced flavor profile and the high altitude at which it is grown.

  • This tea is grown exclusively in the Darjeeling district of West Bengal, India, where the cool climate and mountainous terrain provide the ideal conditions for growing tea. The leaves of the Darjeeling First Flush are hand-plucked by skilled tea workers, and then carefully processed to preserve their delicate flavors and aromas.

  • The resulting tea is light and refreshing, with a floral and fruity flavor profile that is often described as having notes of muscatel grapes and apricots. It has a light golden color and a smooth, silky texture that is characteristic of high-quality teas.

  • Darjeeling First Flush is often enjoyed on its own, without milk or sweetener, in order to fully appreciate its delicate flavors.
