From Golden Tips Teas

A remarkable spring first flush teas from the certified organic plantations of Turzum located in Darjeeling. The leaves are curly and elegant with a relatively darker texture. The liquor is bright golden with hints of liquorice on the nose. The flavor is absolutely delightful with straight notes of mango and fresh spring flowers. The liquor shimmers with a bright golden appearance and a scintillating aroma. Manufactured from superior clonal bushes, this is an excellent first flush black tea from Darjeeling.

This is the first flush SFTGFOP1 picked on Apr 3, 2015. 3g for 10oz of water, 90deg, for 3min.

First flush darjeelings are so unlike any other black tea out there. The dry leaf was a blend of green, grey and brown leaves, with an intensely floral aroma. The liquor is golden, also with a floral aroma. The flavour brings in more vegetal notes, like crisp cucumber and fresh peas. The overall impression is very airy and aromatic, light and fresh.

Flavors: Cucumber, Floral, Peas, Vegetal

This tea sounds lovely. I really need to try more FF darjeelings. It can be so overwhelming to look at all the options and pick though.


I have a bunch of What-cha darjeeling samples from ages ago (last year), plus all these Golden Tips samples that I’m trying to work my way through. I could probably send you some… :)

It’s sweet, light, a little green. I tasted green beans, seaweed.
My colleague smelled blueberry, and I smelled very floral notes and soy beans in the dry tea leaves.

My colleague LOVED this tea. I like it alright, I certainly can have this again.
