Getmytea Darjeeling First Flush Teas are one of the most prized teas in the world. This tea is sourced during the first plucking of new leaves and buds, from the onset of spring in March through the month of April. The dry leaves are dark green in appearance and consist of finely plucked whole leaves. The cup is very mellow with a light body having a fantastic spring fresh flavor and a mellow aftertaste. The tea is famous for its lively ‘bite’ and an abundance of fresh flavor.
The meaning of “Getmytea Single Estate”
The word “Single Estate” means that this selection of Getmytea tea is plucked and manufactured in one tea estate and does not contain any blends of chemical-full or adulterated cheaper teas.
What makes this tea so special
This special tea is plucked specially for Getmytea at Gopaldhara Tea Estate in the Mirik hills of Darjeeling in North East India which is one of the highest tea estates in Darjeeling. It enjoys a mountain climate with very low temperature and the hills are mostly engulfed in fog and mist. The primary reason for the exquisite flavor in Darjeeling Tea is the harsh climate conditions which results in stunted growth which in turn results in flavor. The climate gets harsher as we go up the mountain range and the flavor intensity also increases subsequently. The planting material and the manufacturing practices also have a huge impact on the quality of the tea. The high elevation during the winter months causes the tea plant to develop special flavors and aroma which is typical of authentic Getmytea Darjeeling Loose Leaf Teas.
