This is an early harvest first flush tea from the Darjeeling region of India. The tea is famous for its lively ‘bite’ and an abundance of fresh flavor. This tea is a spirited embodiment of these qualities. It can be well-defined as clean with a delicate crispness. The Premium First Flush tea has a clean finish and is a very mellow aftertaste.
It is the new season’s first flush tea and has 100% fine, greenish leaf with few tips. On brewing the liquor is yellow in appearance with full transparency. The tea bushes are cultivated and harvested between altitudes of 3500 – 7000 ft. Harvested during the months of March and April, Gopaldhara’s Premium First Flush is minimally oxidized during rolling. To get the best out of this tea, always use freshwater and boil it to a temperature of 85 ° C and let the tea brew for 3 – 4 minutes. The flavor of the tea remains for multiple infusions.
The high elevation during the winter months causes the tea plant to develop special flavors and aroma which is typical of authentic Darjeeling Loose Leaf Teas.
