Darjeeling First Flush (Teesta Valley Tea Garden) Black Tea

Amongst the misty foothills of the snow capped Himalayas, nestles the “Champagne of Indian tea”, Darjeeling.

The first flush of teas from Darjeeling are a tea connoisseur's treasure. They're the product of harsh Himalayan winters which reduce leaf moisture and concentrate the flavours, helping the tea retain its deeply aromatic, grassy and astringent notes. From Teesta Valley Tea Garden we bring you a Darjeeling from the very first first week of the season - it provides the greatest example of style. It's delicate, floral, gentle, and it could well make you look at your cup with wonder.

Food pairing: An exquisite treat on its own, or with fresh fruits like apples, apricots, strawberries, delicate sweet treats, grilled fish.

Brewing instructions: Best without milk to savour the exquisite character. 1-2 teaspoons of loose leaf or 1 pyramid bag. 2-3 mins at 90-95ºC. Just turn your kettle off before boiling if you don't have a temperature controlled kettle.

Ingredients: Black Tea. Contains Caffeine.

Until at least the end of June, £1 for every large loose leaf pack sold will be donated to Regenerate-RISE, supporting vulnerable isolated elderly including supply boxes due to Coronavirus.
