Darjeeling 1st Flush uses only the smallest, freshest buds and leaves, harvested at the start of spring, right after the winter dormancy. The 1st Flush is an anomaly in the black tea category being only partially oxidized, making it more similar to a green or oolong. By not fully oxidizing this tea reveals all of its intense floral aroma.  This tea comes to us from the sustainable and organic Ging Estate* in Darjeeling, India.

The body of flavor is crisp , clean, with champagne notes. Ideally drunk on its own. Pairs well with light cheese, high tea style sandwiches, and fruits.  

*The farmers of this region are known for the incredible care they take of their pickers. The pickers are given incredible wages, heath care, and a retirement plan. Not only that, but the children of the pickers are also ensured proper schooling.
