2021 ULTRA LUXURY FIRST FLUSH DARJEELING – FTGFOP1 FLOWERY
One sip and you'll know why Darjeeling is known as the 'Champagne of Teas'.
There are Darjeeling teas, and then there are Ultra Luxury First Flush Darjeeling teas. Here, in the shade of Mt. Everest and Mt. Kanchenjuga, tea bushes are dormant between November and March. Ultra Luxury First Flush Darjeeling teas represent the absolute pinnacle of the region with leaves plucked during the first two weeks of the spring season, when the new shoots are full of 'pent up' flavour.
Choose from Liza Hill Estate (round and flavourful, with notes of champagne), Puttabong Estate (smooth and full of champagne notes), and Risheehat Estate (lightly astringent with classic champagne notes).
The 'Flowery grade' is rare and means the tea has intense champagne, almost orchid-like flavour.
