First Flush Darjeeling, harvested in spring from the Camellia Sinensis plant's first buds, is a rare delight cherished by tea aficionados. Its light, delicate flavor, marked by floral notes and a crisp astringency, distinguishes it from the heartier second flush. Infused with hues ranging from golden to amber to green, it offers a tantalizing taste reminiscent of lychees with a hint of caramel.

Delicate, fresh, refined and precious this estate's first flush will bring you a rare and heightened tea experience to be savored. Climate change has really shifted the quality of the past few years' Darjeeling harvests, but this year we are pleased at the superior cup offered by this spectacular garden as it transitions to Organic certification!
