This organic First Flush is from this initial short season – the leaves are dark and green producing a light copper cup with fresh, delicate flavours and mild astringency. This tea has a slightly darker cup than earlier years as it comes from slightly later in this first season.

Brewing Instructions

These are delicate leaves so we recommend infusing in freshly drawn or filtered water at 95℃ for 3 to 5 minutes.
1 teaspoon per cup or to taste. Don’t forget to add more water for a further infusion.

“Like the green teas I feel these Darjeeling black teas are best enjoyed not too strong. I tend to use just half a teaspoon per cup. I also add more water for further infusions.” James
