Organic First Flush Darjeeling

Harvested a stone’s throw from the majestic Nepalese Himalayas, this Darjeeling from the Risheehat estate positively sings springtime—lilting citrus notes of orange and bergamot tickle the palate, as a pleasing astringency strums along, buoyed by minty coolness and a rose-like body. Finishing off with a sweetness found in white teas and a wonderfully buttery aftertaste that envelops the tongue, this spring symphony will both refresh and stimulate even the most jaded tea drinker.

While balanced and aromatic in the pot, it is also well-suited for brewing in a gaiwan, revealing successive characteristics over multiple infusions.

As with our Chinese teas, Nannuoshan is proud to have sourced this Darjeeling personally, directly from the farm, ensuring its provenance and quality. And our selection criteria was only one: getting the best Darjeeling First Flush of the whole estate!
