This outstanding first flush, or first plucking, infuses a bright, light-bodied cup reminiscent of a fine white tea. organic tea leaves bring forth lovely floral aromas and a sweet, lingering finish with notes of muscat grapes and lychee fruit. Our 2013 First Flush Darjeeling will feature artwork that was created by Brazilian artist Gomes De Souza. It is eleventh in a series from our Tea Gallery Collection.
Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.

Darjeeling at it's best
May 15, 2013
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.
