Darjeeling 1st Flush, Margaret’s Hope Estate

Darjeeling 1st Flush, Margaret’s Hope Estate

29.00 36.25

One of the most anticipated harvests of the spring tea season, Darjeeling First Flush hails from the steep hills of northern India. This lot is from Margaret’s Hope Estate, and was harvested by hand in early April 2016. 

The dry buds and leaves range from silvery green to dark olive and brown, and have a pleasant spicy aroma. Don’t be misled by the pale liquor color: the light, orange flavor leads to an incredibly long finish with surprising complexity. An exquisite example of First Flush, and one to savor on its own.
