Satisfying Darjeeling first flush

This was my second year to try the first flush Darjeeling that Republic brings out in the spring season. The price is substantially higher than typical Republic offerings, but the quality of the first flushes has been excellent in both years. This is a delicate and complex flavored tea that brews to a golden color and the slightly sweet flavor lingers after drinking. I have tried reusing leaves for a second brew, but that comes out far too weak for my taste. Despite that, I realize that good Darjeeling teas can be extremely expensive, so I appreciate the reasonable price point that ROT provides on this excellent selection. This tea has far more flavor than a regular Darjeeling loose tea bought in supermarkets, and it is definitely worth a try.

I was so disappointed in this tea. I've tried a lot of darjeelings, and this is the lowest quality I've ever tasted. I'll go back to purchasing mine elsewhere.

I just tried this tea at my Mom's Group and I, actually all of us, found it to be delicious and full bodied without being bitter. Will definitely be ordering more! And...we LOVE LOVE LOVE the art on the can...really whimsical and happy.

This tea is delightful and soothing. The amber color is gorgeous, and the floral and grassy notes are perfect. I've learned to brew by color, and this prevents any chance of bitterness. The artwork on the can is outstanding. This one is a keeper.

I recently recieved a 2013 first first flush darjeeling tea as a gift and fell in love. Then ordered 2 more tins of the 2014. Slightly different but both utterly heavenly. I make iced tea out it. Absolutely nothing better than a glass of iced First Flush Darjeeling tea on a warm day. Heavenly! I am so spoiled now!

First flush Darjeeling continues to be my overall favorite tea. Every year I order four cans from Republic of Tea right away without hesitation. Different plantation this year, Jungpana, and a true winner. Highly recommended!

First time to try a first flush!

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.
