Organic Fairtrade First Flush Tea

grand cru single estate leaf tea

First Flush teas are the tender pickings from the new first leaves in spring. Zesty and full of youthful vitality, our biodynamic First Flush Darjeeling is prized for its characteristic astringent flavor and light golden liquor. The result is the grand cru of teas, made amidst great fanfare to mark the start of a new season. First Flush is limited in supply as it depends on prevailing weather conditions.

The tea is grown at Makaibari, the first biodynamic tea estate in the world, situated 3-4000 ft high up in the Himalayas. The estate is protected on all sides by lush virgin forests and is the home and livelihood to a community of 1700 people, a family of panthers and a richly diverse wildlife.

Our promise to you. We believe we have some of the finest organic teas in the world. The purity and quality of our teas, and the natural harmony and well being of the estate and its people mean everything to us. Our biodynamic, organic and fairtrade credentials are your guarantee that our teas are produced in the best and fairest ways possible. We hope they give you as much pleasure and enrich your lives as much as they do ours.

Suggested Use

Enjoy. Allow one level teaspoon of tea per person. Pour on freshly boiled water and infuse for up to 3 minutes.

Fairtrade black tea.

All ingredients are biodynamic and organic.

In keeping with our philosophy, our teas are free from all artificial additives and gmos.

홍차의 느낌이라기에는...

Posted by Reviewer2067907 on Mar 19, 2014

first flush니까 다즐링일까 하면서 샀는데, 다즐링은 맞겠지민 뭐랄까... 홍차라기보다는 억센 풀의 맛이 좀 더 많이 나더군요. 잘못 우린건가 했는데 한 통 다 마실때까지 별 맛을 못 느껴서 추천은 못 하겠더라고요.

Slightly overpriced

Posted by Reviewer1123526 on Jul 26, 2011

It's written "grand cru" but it's more like "vilage" - the quality of this tea should be better. it's not typical for first flush. It's cost should be around 4-5$ and not 8.

Organic First Flush Darjeeling Tea - a great product!

Posted by Reviewer2475031 on Nov 15, 2010

Thanks iHerb for your timely and friendly service. I have already recommended your service to my daughter, and at least two of my colleagues who love good teas. The Hampstead First Flush Organic Darjeeling tea is unquestionably a very refreshing, crisp, and flavorful tea. I have been drinking tea since I was 5 or 6 years old (I am 58 now). I can distinguish even the slightest variations in teas. The subtle yet distinct flavor and character of this Organic Darjeeling tea changes my mood (cheers me up) as soon as I take the first sip on a weekend morning (rain, shine or snow). I do not add anything to this tea - just drink virgin! After I pour the brewed tea from the tea pot into my tea cup, I also drop a few brewed leaves of this tea from the tea pot straight to my cup; this way, you keep getting the flavor out of the leaves till the last drop. Many people don't know this trick. I suggest everyone to try this (yes, it will taste a bit stronger, but then, you can't beat the experience). Thanks iHerb. Prosanta
