Darjeeling First Flush Badamtam 2013

We are very excited to announce that our First Flush Darjeeling for 2013 has arrived.

First Flush Badamtam 2013 from the picturesque and prestigious Badamtam estate, has all the typical characteristics of an outstanding First Flush Darjeeling.
It has a fresh bright taste, a delicate aroma with a smooth finish and a hint of muscatel top notes.

For those new to First Flush please review the ’Making the Perfect Brew" guide below, as First Flush Darjeelings should be brewed with water at around 85c and for only 3 minutes.

This is a truly exceptional First Flush Darjeeling and stock is limited – don’t miss out.

Pale in the cup, rich and fruity scent. There are definite muscatel notes here. I can tell this is a really lovely Darjeeling, but as so often happens with Darjeelings, it made my tummy really MAD. A lot of Assams do that as well. Sigh.

Stephanie

Weird! I wonder why they do that and not other teas.

ashmanra

I have assumed it has to do with poly phenol levels and the terroir in India, perhaps coupled with a difference in camellia sinensis assamica as opposed to camellia sinensis sinensis varietals. Processing may play a part, because Ceylon greens don’t bother me, and I like low grown Ceylons fine and they don’t seem to bother me, either. If a tea is very astringent it will also bother my stomach.

Ashmanra are you wearing a lab coat right now because that sounded really scientific. :) Assams are the biggest offenders for me. Yunnans seem to be the least tormenting of the black teas. Fortunately I love them best anyway. I have never read an explanation before and your’s seems quite logical.

My tummy loves puerh! It makes the angry go away.

Poo makes my tummy rumble in a good way!

ashmanra

That’s how my hubby asks for shu puerh. “Make the stuff that makes me rumble!”

Don’t you just love plantation names? (Poor owners must cringe listening to me mangle them.) I am currently pronouncing Ba-dam-TAM like a bad comedy rimshot.
