We cupped more than 30 teas before selecting this Darjeeling First Flush. First flush Darjeeling comes from the first leaves emerging after the plant's winter dormant season. Ours is grown 5,000 feet above sea level and produces a balanced cup with a bright, smooth finish, and abundant notes of mint and fresh pine that complement the distinctive muscatel flavor characteristic of Darjeeling. This tea has great value, as it is good for four to five infusions.
