First Flush Tea is plucked immediately after the long cold winter months and is bountiful with fresh flavour as the bushes are full of vigour. They are stronger in this period when compared to the summer and pre-winter. The infusion has a greenish leaf appearance and the tea tastes fresh and strong. These teas are also produced from the prime sections of the garden from the earliest production beginning from the 1st Week of March up to 15th April depending on the elevation. They brew into light mellow cups with excellent first flush character.
