Fun Facts:

So, what does "first flush" mean anyway? The "flushes" are growth spurts of the tea plant. Starting in springtime, the tea plants of Darjeeling "flush" several times. The first and second flushes are the ones most prized by connoisseurs. The first flush is known for its greener, lighter flavor, while the second is known for its fruity, muscatel grape notes. After the second flush is harvested, the monsoons come, and some estates offer a (far lesser quality) monsoon flush. And, finally, before the tea plants return to winter dormancy, there's an autumnal flush. This tea is from the superior first flush harvest.
