Our 2023 spring harvest from the Makaibari Estate has arrived. The dry leaves have a vibrant color with an abundance of green tips. The aroma is fresh and clean, reminiscent of a pristine mountain forest covered with wildflowers. The brewed liquor has a deep golden hue with honey and floral aromatics. The taste is classic first flush - clean, fresh and lightly floral with a mild astringency that is characteristic of teas grown in the Himalayas. We recommend steeping with water just off the boil as the slightly cooler water with highlight the tea’s natural sweetness.
If you enjoy the nuanced tastes of green and oolong teas, you'll enjoy this superb first flush Darjeeling. Certified Organic & Fair Trade Certified.
