Organic Fairtrade First Flush Tea
grand cru single estate leaf tea
First Flush teas are the tender pickings from the new first leaves in spring. Zesty and full of youthful vitality, our biodynamic First Flush Darjeeling is prized for its characteristic astringent flavor and light golden liquor. The result is the grand cru of teas, made amidst great fanfare to mark the start of a new season. First Flush is limited in supply as it depends on prevailing weather conditions.
The tea is grown at Makaibari, the first biodynamic tea estate in the world, situated 3-4000 ft high up in the Himalayas. The estate is protected on all sides by lush virgin forests and is the home and livelihood to a community of 1700 people, a family of panthers and a richly diverse wildlife.
Our promise to you. We believe we have some of the finest organic teas in the world. The purity and quality of our teas, and the natural harmony and well being of the estate and its people mean everything to us. Our biodynamic, organic and fairtrade credentials are your guarantee that our teas are produced in the best and fairest ways possible. We hope they give you as much pleasure and enrich your lives as much as they do ours.
