Product Description

The flavour of this is more delicate, floral and ephemeral than Murchie's other 2nd flush Darjeelings, Darjeeling Estate and Darjeeling Pure.


1st Flush means that this tea come from the first plucking of tea after the plants come out of winter dormancy and the ensuing spring rains have finished.


The leaves are quite green (for a black tea), producing a light cup with delicate flavour. This particular 1st flush is quite smooth and creamy, not spicy. It is bright, with a light astringency which leaves the mouth dry and extends the flavour.


This is definitely a tea for the connoisseur!
