    Giddapahar SFTGFOP 1 CH SPL EX 03 First Flush 2018

    The dry leaves material of Giddapahar SFTGFOP 1 CH SPL EX 03 First Flush 2018 awards Darjeeling tea lovers with true eye candy even before getting to actually trying it. A rare combination of brown, red and turquoise shades that most probably only Darjeeling’ modern first flushes processing can evoke. Just like last year, Giddapahar’s first flush sticks out with downright perfect harmony and balance of its flavor composition, which as such is unique among this year’s FF’s, too. However, 2018 adds a floral elegance to this that might only be possible in this exceptional year for first flushes from Darjeeling. Highly recommended to friends of high-floral teas without any astringency or bitterness.

  • Sale! Giddapahar First Flush 2017 : Giddapahar Spring Gold

    Giddapahar Spring Gold – First Flush 2017

    5,7018,60

    The dry leaves material of Giddapahar Spring Gold First Flush 2017 awards Darjeeling tea lovers with true eye candy even before getting to actually trying it. A rare combination of brown, red and turquoise shades that most probably only Darjeeling’ modern first flushes processing can evoke. In terms of taste, despite its comparably low buds ratio, Giddapahar’s early first flush (March 207) holds some positive surprises. Instead of the dominant flowery notes that are typical for many DJ first flushes, it comes with heavy sweetness and seductive dried fruit aroma. The mild roasting takes the spicy edges off this tea, giving way from a broad spectum of malty notes. And it’s mainly these notes that will linger on your palate long after actually drinking this tea..

  • Goomtee Spring Oolong First Flush 2018

    Goomtee Spring Oolong First Flush 2018

    6,4019,80

    With the Spring Oolong First Flush 2018, Goomtee Tea Estate makes another step in the development of modern first flush processing in Darjeeling.  Here, the line between black tea and Oolong tea processing has been blurred for a while already, in a way that makes it even hard to clearly assign the result to any of the two categories. Now, thanks to rich downpours and temporarily snow-covered tea gardens during the preceding winter, 2018 is a truly exceptional year for Darjeeling teas. And whoever is lucky enough to getting to try this tea in this special season, will certainly agree with me that the development of first flush processing in Darjeeling is going in a very good direction!
