Darjeeling First Flush 2017 Tea


Hello Tea Lover! Thanks youfor patiently waiting for our Darjeeling First Flush Teas to be updated to our site. Like every season, every year, we have been hunting for that special heap of tea lying in one corner of a tea estate,clamoring for its unique flavor quality and ready to be picked. I guess they too want a proper tea taster to categorize them,rank them and finally put a price tag on them. They know their worth and only an experienced Darjeeling local guycan shoulder them -that's no doubt "us"... Ahem!!

The year's biggest Darjeeling season, Darjeeling First Flush 2017 Tea season had a slow start

This year, there was no "Christmas Rain" and there was drought like situation. On March 15, 2017 I had taken a tour of various tea gardens from the highest altitude tea gardens to the lowest towards Gayabari Tea Estate on the Mirik Valley region. I then climbed up via Longview Tea Estate. It was just a survey ride inspecting the tea bushes. To my utter surprise none of the tea gardens had done flushing and there was almost zero new First Flush tea leaves on the bushes. Only one tea garden had abundance of flushing, which was Longview Tea Estate. This is because it is situated in a pretty warm temperature and had received some rainfall.

It was an alarming sight and I thought I wouldn't get any teas this year due to the dry weather conditions. I thought there would be no tea except for some small heaps got from irrigation. But I guess, the rain gods wasn't so cruel after all. After my visit, it did rain and quite sufficiently. Now it was sun's turn to shower it's mercy on the land. After the rain, the land needs to warm up a bit to sprout new life, the tea leaves. Unfortunately weather conditions started to be extremely cold and gloomy.

Like in the winters when it is cold, the tea growth gets inhibited. Here, the much needed warmth of the rays was missing and hence no flushing. The silver lining was there and the clouds ultimately moved. It showed us the rays of hope from March 21. Darjeeling First Flush 2017 was saved, but started a bit late. This also means the First Flush period was cut short. And production quantity lower, but thankfully within the quality time period.

Castleton First Flush tea


[Darjeeling First Flush 2017]

Castleton Clonal Classic was one of our favorites in the past 7 years ago when Castleton literally stopped making the quality we loved. They concerntrated more on the famed Moonlight. Last year we had requested them to make for us and they did. This year too they made it for us. Thanks to Mr Gazmer and Mr DB Gurung for their hardwork. Its an awesome tea which we had missed for so long. In 2010 we had been a fan of this Darjeeling black tea and since then Castleton started producing more of Moonlights than this version. Though they have continued with the Autumn Flush. Only during the First Flush, it was missing. And to be frank, the First Flush version is the best. We invite you to try this exquisite variety tea and judge for yourselves. A true classic 2017 Castleton First Flush black tea. This 2017 First Flush, we are glad that we can once again drink it and bring back the old memories.

GIDDAPAHAR China Delight - EX 5

[Darjeeling First Flush 2017]

This First Flush 2017, Mr Sudhangshu, was kind enough to allow us to that high altitude special quality growing section. And as a result, a top notch Giddapahar Darjeeling Tea which we believe can surpass some of the most renowned tea estates. We skipped one of them for this. So you can understand. As we have always said, good quality tea is always limited in quantity and cannot be produced in bulk. This too is extremely limited and this quality is with nobody because this particular best invoice was taken by us in whole. There are tons of Giddapahar tea being sold on the net. Do try theirs and try ours as well. You be the judge! You will forget all of it that you have tried in the past :) Its a marvelous Darjeeling black Giddapahar First Flush classic tea!
