Our Darjeeling First Flush 2019 brews a beautifully bright golden cup. The soft liquor opens with fruity fragrance mixed with floral notes. A lively tea with a sweet aroma of ripe fruits, abundant fresh flavour and earthy notes. First flush teas are the new leaf and are harvested at the start of the tea growing season.

Like fine vineyards, Tea estates are selected for the remarkable character of their terroir and what that imparts to the tea bushes that grow there. The Namring estate is nestled in the foothills of the himalayas with wonderful growing conditions and soils for tea bushes.
We welcome the arrival of spring with our most treasured tea harvest. Under the guidance and expertise of our tea master, we oversee the process of nurturing the tea bushes through the dormant months, to the tea picking and tea grading of the celebrated first tea buds of one of the world’s best teas.
