The arrival of Darjeeling 1st Flush is always one of the most exciting days in the tea calendar and this 2020 1st Flush from Bannockburn certainly doesn't disappoint! With a distinctive Darjeeling muscatel note and a vibrant aroma the finish is brisk, greenish and astringent as is typical of first flush teas from the area. Bannockburn is one of the historic gardens in Darjeeling, having been planted in the 1850s by Scottish tea pioneers. The garden now operates as an Organic garden and is known for the fresh fruity flavours of its black teas.
