Bannockburn 1st Flush 2021 Darjeeling Organic
The arrival of Darjeeling 1st Flush is always one of the most exciting days in the tea calendar and this 2021 1st Flush from Bannockburn certainly doesn't disappoint! With a distinctive Darjeeling muscatel note and a vibrant aroma that takes you straight to the tea factories of Darjeeling. This year's tea is a little greener than last year so it is worth having a play with the brewing parameters, maybe a shorter brew or cooler temperature depending on how you like to drink your 1st Flush. 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.
