First Flush tea

First Flush tea

Harvesting season: the first flush is the first harvest of the year and lasts from March to the end of April. First flush gives the highest quality because the tea plant grows slowly after the winter. Because of the slow growth the tea plant makes complex aromas which you taste in your cuppa.

Since the first flush is oxidized for only 20 minutes, the leaves can still be a bit green.

Because of its excellent flavour, the demand of first flush is higher than the supply. This can be seen in the price. It is not for nothing that first flush is called 'Champagne’ of the teas.

Darjeeling Kings Valley First Flush Organic tea*


premium thee van theexpress.nlThe Champagne under the teas is how it is referred to. The reason why is the muscatel finish and its clear colour.  First flush is the first harvest after the winter and since it is oxidized for only 20 minutes the leaves still remain green in part.

The tea tastes sweet with a slightly bitter finish. The mouthfeel is fresh and slightly astringent. You taste a flowery muscatel aroma.

Darjeeling is steeped at 100°C  for 4 minutes. Not everyone can appreciate such a strong cup of tea. For a milder taste, steep for 2 minutes.
