There is a delightful name for Darjeeling First Flush tea “LOVER BLUSH”. The brand new two leaves and a bud are plucked from the heart of the garden.  Flush is 1-2 inches leaves from top of the bush. The picking is done before the springtime, the first pick of the season. The tea is harvested in March to April each year.

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, its uniqueness is in its location of cultivation, 6000 feet above the sea level. It has a light, zesty and brisk flavour and a delicate amber hue.

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. Widely known as the champagne of teas, with lingering fruitiness that starts your day on a note of grandeur.
