The Darjeeling First Flush is the rarest and the most exquisite Darjeeling tea that you can find anywhere in the world. From a single estate in Darjeeling, India, its uniqueness lies in its location of cultivation, 6000 feet above sea level. It has a light, zesty, and brisk flavour coloured by a delicate amber hue.

Another delightful name for Darjeeling First Flush tea is “Lover Blush” as the two leaves and bud form the shape of a heart. The flush is the first 1-2 inches of leaves from the top of the bush. The picking is done before the springtime and is the first pick of the season. The tea is harvested between March to April each year.

This Darjeeling first flush is a luxury orthodox tea, handpicked by Tea2you’s very own specialists at the tea estates to give you nothing less than the royal taste of Darjeeling tea. It is widely known as the champagne of teas, with lingering fruitiness that starts your day on a note of grandeur.

Interesting Fact: You can re-infuse Tea2you’s teas two to three times (consumed within a day). Enjoy it hot or chilled, and you can add lemon. Milk is a crime to this tea as our tea has no tannin.
