Our 2019 Spring Darjeeling is an early harvest black tea from the Darjeeling region of India. Different from later harvests, this first flush has a light body and layers of character that lean toward floral with a hint of fruity notes and a crisp clean finish. Grown on the Balasun Estate, it has all of the classic notes of a first flush that are highly prized by connoisseurs across the globe.

Famous for producing some of the best quality teas, the Balasun Tea Estate (est. 1871) is spread across rolling hills with moderately gentle slope. The garden altitude varies from 365 meters to 1375 meters above sea level and temperature ranges between 44 degrees in winter to a maximum of 85 degrees in summer.

Black Tea | High caffeine | Steep at 212° for 2-3 minutes.

Fresh From Origin

When teas are harvested and processed, they are often graded. The four basic grades are based on the size and wholeness of the leaf or buds that are harvested, with whole leaf being the highest quality and dust being the lowest. The grades are then split further to indicate what is included in the tea. For example, one grade for Darjeeling is SFTGFOP, or Super Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. That’s rather a mouthful to say though, so instead, we’ll just go with A+.
