Bravo DAVIDsTEA!! I’ve been longing to try a Darjeeling first flush since I got a taste of my first (tea) love Margaret’s Hope second flush and discovered the many estates and varieties that exist. And just the other week I was reading the DarjeelingTeaXpress blog and store website where they have some of this very tea for sale (about the same price) along with some lovely pictures of the estate. (found here: http://www.darjeelingteaxpress.com/products/2011-Darjeeling-First-Flush-Jungpana-Black-Tea.html)
And now for the tea! A rich sweet aroma followed by an equally sweet and delicious liquor – hardly a touch of astringency but with that characteristic darjeeling flavour – yum!!
It was so funny, because I really just walked into the store to buy some Buttered Rum (currently the top rated tea on Steepster!!), and one of the workers recognized me and said “Hey, I have something for you! Darjeeling first flush!” Nearly knocked me off my feet! Haha..
