Darjeeling Steinthal, First Flush FTGFOP1, TeaHaus 225
Founded in 1852, Steinthal is one of the oldest gardens in Darjeeling. Many of the original plants still thrive. Fresh and herbaceous with subtle muscatel peeking through, the Steinthal packs a sizeable bit with the hallmark astringency that First Flush fans adore.
Prep: 3g tea leaves (1 heaping tsp) per 8oz cup of filtered, boiling water. Allow to brew 2 min.
