DARJEELING THE FIRST FLUSH

Black tea | India

Pack 50g
Tea Bags x10
Tin 50g

TASTING NOTE

A pure blend of spring-pricked (first flush) leaves grown in the Darjeeling district of India. Enjoy its fresh, vigorous flavor. 

The 1st Flush is composed by young sprouts which wake up at the end of winter and whose the aromatic components are very condensate. This black tea is very different from the usual standards by its aromas or the color of its leaves. Its yellow lemon infusion is, visually, relatively close to that of a green tea one. The perfume liberated by the leaves is still very “green”, revealing the youngness of harvested sprouts.
Aromas both delicate and clear at mouth.

 

Ingredients: Black tea
Type of tea and origin: Black tea from Darjeeling (India), 1st harvest (spring)
Can be re-infused: 1 - 2 times

LEARN MORE ABOUT BLACK TEA AND ITS BENEFITS

A black tea is a tea for which the oxidation has been allowed to come to an end. That is, during the manufacturing process, the tea leaves were allowed to oxidize completely in contact with air and moisture. Originally green, these leaves then take on a brown or even black color. Oxidation allows better preservation of the tea leaves and black tea can be stored for several years without losing its aroma, while green tea should be stored for 12 to 18 months on average. Black tea has many benefits. Rich in antioxidants, it is beneficial for the cardiovascular system and improves blood circulation. It also has a high theine content.

In India and England, these teas are often accompanied by a hint of milk and sugar. They can be consumed in the morning, in particular CTC teas (manufacturing process in which the leaves are rolled on themselves and which therefore concentrates more theine). The story goes, that in the 17th century, a shipment of green tea from China to England would have completely oxidized during transport at sea (several months), due to the heat and humidity. of the hold. Far from refusing the cargo, Westerners tasted this "oxidized" tea and were immediately won over by its rich and deep taste. India, the cradle of English black tea, is the main black tea producing region, including the gardens of Darjeeling, Assam and Nilgiri. You can also find teas in Sri Lanka (Ceylon), China and Nepal. In China, black tea is called "Red tea" in reference to the more or less copper color of its liquor.
