Pussimbing Garden Tea 1st Flush
The Pussimbing tea garden is located in the Darjeeling East valley, just below Tiger Hill, and encompasses about 500 acres of land. It produces only 100% certified organic tea. The area’s misty climatic conditions bring about a unique tea with a distinctive fruity flavor.The word “Pussimbing” is a collocation of “Pasang” and “Ung”, meaning “water source”. A monk by the name of Pasang is said to have discovered abundant water resources in the area. Hence the name “Pussimbing”. British planters expanded Pussimbing into a commercial plantation around 1911. Today, it is the source of one of the finest bio-dynamically grown organic teas produced in Darjeeling. * First Flush is the first tea harvested after winter, from the end of February until the end of April. It is bright in color and has a light, flowery flavor.
