From Silver Tips Tea

Enjoy the fresh bouquet! The prize crop of Darjeeling, the champagne of teas – this is first flush at its best – slightly astringent, a green hue to the leaf and a pleasant floral tone to the cup. Enjoy the spirit of the Himalayas – Organic, Biodynamic & Fair Trade.

While not a black tea fan, I heard good things about 1st flush Darjeeling and decided to take advantage of a sale at SilvertipsTea. I think this tea is best brewed with a gaiwan. I was surprised by how delicate, flowery, and smooth the first steep was. This tea’s fragrance reminds me of Bai Mu Dan. Successive steeps had more typical black tea qualities—a sweet, tangy, and wine-like orange hued liquid with a pleasantly mild astringency. It left a good first impression.
