FIRST FLUSH DARJEELING
Located at the foothills of the Himalayas, Darjeeling gives India its first flush of the year. Due to the challenging geography and severe weather conditions, the tea bushes in this region are dormant for many months, and the spring flush marks the beginning of the harvest season. The picking of tea leaves of the plant begins in the month of February, often lasting till April. The yield from the First Flush is lower than other flushes, that makes the First Flush Darjeeling Teas rare and sought after.
What is the specialty of first flush teas?
The teas produced in the first flush have a delicate yet rich flavor and are highly aromatic that makes the First Flush Darjeeling Teas exclusive and one of a kind. To retain the tenderness and astringent flavor of these early leaves, First Flush Darjeeling teas are comparatively less oxidized. Moonlight Teas are a speciality of the First Flush, and as the folklore has it, they are only picked on full moon nights before the break of dawn. These teas have subtle and delicate floral-woody intonations.
