darjeeling

Darjeelings are known as the Champagne of teas and are prized for their fresh taste and delicate nuances of flavor with some astringency. 1st flush refers to the first picking of the year, 2nd flush refers to the second picking, and autumnal refers to the last picking of the year.

This is a full-flavored cup, with pronounced muscatel-stone fruit notes coming through. This is not a subtle or delicate Darjeeling, instead it is one to sip slowly, like a single malt whiskey, enjoying the different notes of the flavor profile.

Glenburn Estate, 1st Flush, FTGFOP1, Lot 36

4 oz. $12.94

What a great 1st flush Darjeeling tea! The steeped cup is medium-bodied, very floral, with fresh ripe notes to the flavor, which nicely contrast the light astringency that 1st flush Darjeelings are known for.

Glenburn Estate, Autumnal Flush, FTGFOP

This tea steeps up fuller bodied than most Darjeelings: very smooth, with hints of a soft fruity, sweetness (think musk melon). A wonderful unique Darjeeling, at the opposite end of the Darjeeling scale from first flushes.

Goomtee Estate, 1st Flush, SFTGFOP

4 oz. $28.97

This first flush Darjeeling black tea is VERY aromatic, with strong hints of muscatel and stone-fruit, a long lingering aftertaste, and a surprising amount of body and mouth feel for a 1st flush Darjeeling. This is an exceptional first flush.

Longview Estate, 1st Flush, FTGFOP1

Longview Estate, 1st Flush, FTGFOP1

4 oz. $17.49

This is an extremely fragrant 1st flush Darjeeling black tea. The steeped cup is delicate, slightly floral, slightly sweet, slightly brisk, with a lingering hint of muscatel. This 1st flush is representative of a Darjeeling trend in the last decade of making first flush Darjeelings a little lighter, a little more floral, a little more "green." This is a wonderful example of what is currently the most sought after first flush Darjeeling teas.
