Darjeeling First Flush, our newest spring tea has arrived from Mission Hill Tea Estate in India. In the harsh mountain conditions of the Himalayas, the first spring tea harvest takes place from March through April. It is called First Flush meaning the first harvest of the year. The tea produced from this harvest is valued for its unique, flowery aroma. Its leaves are especially green for a black tea. A delight among tea lovers, the scent and flavor of it reminds one of a walk in a rainy flower garden.
