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

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.
