Darjeeling Teas and Their Characteristics
Darjeeling First Flush
First Flush is the first tea harvested after winter, from the end of February until the end of April. It is bright in color and has a light, flowery flavor.
Darjeeling Second Flush
Second Flush refers to the second harvest of the year, leaves picked from the beginning of June until mid-July. It produces an amber-gold liquor that is fuller and stronger in taste than First Flush.
Garden teas, which carry the exclusive labels of Darjeeling’s famous tea gardens, are in high demand among tea lovers all over the world. However, we do not think that their taste advantage justifies the outrageously high prices that are commonly charged for these teas. The Teekampagne has shown that these garden teas can also be sold at more reasonable prices.
Darjeeling Selected Tea
Selected Tea is carefully selected from different harvests. Its flavor is similar to First Flush, but its liquor is darker.
Green Darjeeling is an unfermented tea. To prevent fermentation, it undergoes a process of steaming immediately after it is plucked. Naturally low in caffeine, this tea ca be very soothing. Green Darjeeling is very popular because of its mild and fresh taste with just the right touch of slight bitterness.
Green Selected Darjeeling
New at Teekampagne is the Green Selected Darjeeling - carefully chosen from different harvests.
In Darjeeling, the very best leaf grade is “Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe 1.” The term refers to tea of the highest quality, which has been most carefully produced from even leaves and tender tips.
