Darjeeling First Flush Organic
First Flush Darjeeling flown direct from the tea gardens of India to the Tea Total warehouse, we bring you the lightest, brightest and freshest premium quality first flush Darjeeling tea. Every year we select from different samples, searching for the tea that most closely matches our taste requirements, a tea we're confident you'll enjoy. Picked during the prime first flush (when the camellia tea bushes are picked for the first time in a season, around March each year). This premium darjeeling is a classic muscatel tea. Delicate in flavour, light in colour with a clear, clean finish.
This season our first flush is from the Jungpana estate in the Kurseong South valley. According to a legend, the estate is named for Jung Bahadur, faithful servant of an Englishman, who was hunting a man-eating tiger in these hills. Jung was mortally wounded trying to save his master and since his dying wish was for water, which is 'pana' in the local language, the hills came to be called Jung-Pana. The estate is known to produce some of the most sought after muscatel Darjeelings and borders the classic Goomtee tea estate.
