Spring is cause for celebration for lovers of the leaf. The dormancy period is over and the Darjeeling hillsides are radiant with young, fragrant leaves. Rich in essential oils, these prized leaves yield a delicate flavor, unique to our Darjeeling 2014.

We are excited to bring this year's first spring leaves from Jungpana, a south facing estate near the famous town of Darjeeling in the Himalayas. This highly-regarded plantation, world-renowned for producing teas with delicate muscatel notes, lies at an altitude of 3000 feet. The exceptional quality of this tea is due to the fact that the bulk of the tea bushes come from China. We selected this tea on site and had it air freighted to ensure the freshest tea possible. Regarded as the ultimate tea experience, limited quantities are available.

Large silver tips and abundant verdant leaves steep a smooth amber cup with very little astringency and a floral hint on the top note.

Each year, our limited edition First Flush Darjeeling tea label features original artwork that captures the essence of this rare harvest. This year’s selection is from our first citizen social media art contest chosen from multiple entries. This artwork was created by Vancouver, British Columbia artist Karen Hollowell. It is the twelfth in a series from our Tea Gallery Collection.

STEEPING INSTRUCTIONS

Fill the kettle with fresh, filtered water and heat to just short of boiling. Warm the teapot by swirling steamy water in it and then pour it out. Place one teaspoon of tea leaves into your pot or infusing basket. Pour 6 oz of water per serving over the tea leaves and infuse for three to five minutes. Experiment to find your favored steeping time. Serve the tea. Avoid letting the leaves stew. Enjoy hot or let cool completely and pour over a generous amount of ice. Add the used tea leaves to your garden. They make a healthy fertilizer for flowering plants.

This was my third attempt at first flush Darjeeling year. Third try is a charm. My first two attempts were from well known estates, but had I not known better, I would have taken them for last years harvest. This one is fresh and all the qualities that I love in Darjeeling teas. I purchase tea from this estate several times last year and loved it. This batch is even better.
