Harvest: 2012 Spring 
Caffeine: High
Glenburn Estate, West Bengal, India

First Flush is one of the most anticipated harvests every year. The first, small leaves are picked by hand in early spring. The aroma of the leaves is sweet and nutty with a fine floral component and a characteristic crisp finish. This year's crop hails from the Glenburn Estate, one of the oldest estates in Darjeeling. This lot is also sweet and memorably bright on the palate, one of the better lots in recent memory. Great for cold-infused iced tea.
