Giddapahar First Flush
Black tea, India

Floral, muscatel, dried apricot, raisin
Giddapahar Tea Estate was founded in 1881 and been under the ownership and management of the Shaw family ever since its inception. Located on the gentle slopes of the Kurseong Valley at an elevation of 1500m, Giddapahar produces exquisite and distinctive Darjeeling teas from tea plants more than 100 years old.

Its first flush teas (the very first leaves to appear in spring after the winter dormancy) are much sought-after.

Delicious hot steeped or cold-brewed. When cold-brewed in sparkling water, this tea’s floral and fruity notes are accentuated, creating a vibrant and playful, celebratory tea.

March 2020 harvest.

Preparation:
 Hot steep for 2 - 3 minutes at 95° (two infusions). Cold sparkling: add 4 grams of dry leaves to a 330ml bottle of sparkling water. Chill in the fridge for two hours then strain and serve.
