Grown in the foothills of the Himalayas, Darjeeling 1st flush is known as the champagne of teas. This 1st flush Darjeeling is picked towards the end of the 1st flush season. The tea produces an infusion with an enticing amber colour.
A first-flush TGFOP1 Darjeeling, is a little stronger in body and colour than the later picking. It is fresh and fruity but a little more astringent than the second-flush Darjeeling teas. Its balanced taste is perfect for afternoon tea.
The distinctive flavour of Darjeeling arises from an unusual combination of high mountains, steep terrain, well drained soil and misty swirling clouds. Add the extreme cold in the winter and intense heat in the summer and the end result is the exquisite muscatel character and flowery aroma of good Darjeeling.
The tea bags are made from soilon - a corn starch which is biodegradable.
