It is a limited edition rare First Flush tea which has a bright green finely plucked whole leaves. This kind of tea is made during the first two weeks of First Flush and is produced in very few quantities. During the cold winter months of December to February there is no production and all the bushes are in hibernation. Once the season starts the bushes are in a special state and produce some exquisite flavor. The low temperatures experienced during March impart a very distinct character to the tea. The exact science as to what happens to the bushes during the hibernation period is not known to us.

The cup is fruity and mellow having umami flavor without any harshness. It leaves behind a very pleasant and distinct aftertaste. We all know about the four basic tastes i.e. sweet, sour, bitter and salty. But we never noticed that there is an additional taste called “Umami”. It is a Japanese word which means “pleasant savory taste”. We’ve all tasted this umami taste without noticing it. Some of our foods which have this umami taste are tomatoes, mushrooms, seaweed, soy sauce and parmesan cheese and breast milk.

This rare first flush tea has been very delicately processed in the garden. It needs to be brewed at 80°C. If the water is boiled more than the mentioned temperature then the tea will lose its flavor. So it is mandatory that you strictly follow the brewing instructions. Please refer to brewing instructions for more.
