The first flush of this tea refers to its plucking season from March to mid-April. This Darjeeling is less oxidized than the following flush, resulting in a greener leaf and lighter, more fragrant flavor. Along with the signature muscatel flavor of a Darjeeling, this tea brews a slightly dry and crisp cup.
