Thurbo Darjeeling 1st Flush

Contains Caffeine

$8.50–$111.00

Exceptionally floral-aromatic tippy black/green leaves produced during the peak week of this year's First Flush season. Made from pure China hybrid plants, these well-fired leaves produce a particularly sweet and smooth tasting tea liquor. Darjeeling is a tea from the region of Darjeeling in West Bengal, India. When First Flush Darjeeling is properly brewed, it yields a thin-bodied, light-coloured infusion with a floral aroma. The flavour can have a tinge of astringent tannic characteristics and a musky spiciness sometimes described as "muscatel" Muscatel is an elusive taste found in some Darjeeling teas, usually second flushes. It is very hard to describe the taste in words, but it is easy to recognize the taste once you are familiar with it. Unlike most Indian teas, Darjeeling tea is normally made from the smaller leaf Chinese variety of Camellia sinensis var. sinensis, rather than the large-leaved Assam plant (Camellia sinensis var. assamica). Darjeeling tea is usually made as black tea; however, Darjeeling oolong, green and white teas are starting to become more popular, though quite expensive.

Brew Ha-Ha

For most Black teas about a teaspoon per 8 oz. cup should be used. Unlike Green teas, which turn bitter when brewed at higher temperatures, black tea should be steeped in freshly boiled water. If you prefer a stronger cup of Black tea, use more tea in your infusion and steep for the suggested amount of time. The more delicate black teas, like Darjeeling, should be steeped for around 3 to 4 minutes. Broken leaf teas, which have more surface area, need less brewing time than whole leaves. Whole leaf Black teas, and Black teas typically served with milk or lemon should be steeped 4 to 5 minutes.
