First Flush Darjeeling (2017 Upper Namring 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 2017 offering is grown at the Upper Namring Estate EX-22, once of the oldest and largest tea gardens in Darjeeling.

While the dry leaf is a bit larger and more open-leaf than traditional first flush types, it is very appealing to the eye, with large silver tips and hard-withered evergreen leaf balanced throughout. The cup is equally interesting, with a citrusy-sweet aroma and a bright and clean flavor. 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.

Brewing Tips: 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!
