    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.

    Very good tea

    Posted by iHerb Customer on Feb 20, 2017 | Verified Purchase

    This is a Darjeeling "first flush", which means it's made with the young leaves harvested in spring. The infusion has a light amber color because the leaves are not completely oxidized. If you like strong black teas, look elsewhere, this is more like a mix between green and black tea. It has a mild flavor (not very astringent or bitter) and is supposed to be high on antioxidants.

    홍차의 느낌이라기에는...

    Posted by iHerb Customer on Mar 19, 2014 | Verified Purchase

    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 iHerb Customer on Jul 26, 2011 | Verified Purchase

    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.

    Thanks for your feedback!
