Overview of Organic First Flush Darjeeling - 2016 Singell DJ-5 Estate

Comprised of the first tender shoots of the newly grown tea plant, First Flush Darjeeling tea is a seasonal tea offering that is applauded by tea enthusiasts around the world. Our 2016 offering is once again grown at the Singell Estate DJ-5, a famed estate located in North Western Kurseong region of Darjeeling, just outside Kurseong town. Organically cultivated at an elevation ranging from 1,000 to 1,600 meters from pure China tea bushes dating back to 1860, this years offering has a pleasing leaf manufacture that is often hard to produce in the first picking. The leaf grading on this special tea is FTGFOP1.

This season’s First Flush Darjeeling selection is comprised of an attractive mix of well-rolled green and black leaves with many silver buds. When brewed, it yields a light gold infusion with a uniquely intoxicating muscatel bouquet. Typical of a stand out First Flush Darjeeling, it finishes with a pleasing citrus sweetness on the palate.

Our First Flush Darjeeling tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F) and then allowed to cool for just less than a minute. Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. First Flush Darjeeling tea should be steeped for 3 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!
