    Appearance - Shiny black and green leaves with an occasional brown open leaf, well-made with one or two tips
    Aroma - Toasty and nutty, with a prominent hue of soft vegetal sweetness that is so reminiscent of honeysuckle

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is First Flush?

    First Flush is the first harvest of the season. In Darjeeling, the First Flush teas are harvested with the onset of Spring around the first week of March.

    What makes First Flush teas highly-prized around the world?

    First Flush teas from Darjeeling are highly sought after by connoisseurs for their signature freshness and fragrance. The young leaves are delightfully green with silvery tips, and make a sweet, light, and decadent cup with a distinct hue of Spring flowers.

    What is so special about Single Estate?

    Unlike teas blended with teas from multiple estates, Single Estate teas are from a single tea estate and not blended with any other teas. VAHDAM® India's Single Estate teas also mention Invoice No. and Date of Plucking of the teas - identifying the exact lot that is available only with VAHDAM® India and no one else!

    Are these really from the famous Darjeeling tea-growing region?

    Yes! All 100% pure Darjeeling teas come with the Tea Board of India's DARJEELING TEA logo. This logo is allowed only for 100% genuine and authentic Darjeeling teas and is a guarantee that you are buying certified Darjeeling tea

    Best of the lot

    This is a delightful leaf tea with a dark brew (the way I prefer it). The smokey aroma is quite strong. I preferred letting it brew for upto a little over 6 minutes, but that is a matter of personal choice. The proportion of leaf is high altho I wish it was higher. However, at this price point the blend is excellent.
