Peregrine Mountain 1st Flush


An exquisite 1st Flush black tea from the mountains of Yunnan (China), the birthplace of tea. Legend claims a young boy found a Peregrine Falcon, trapped in a snare laid by a local warlord. The bird spoke to the boy and promised if he set him free, he would lead him to a field of undiscovered tea. The boy duly set the Peregrine free and the bird led him to the field of tea, from which this rare tea is picked in the spring. The long, neat leaves have an abundance of golden buds. Expect dark raisin, plum, and caramel notes, a smooth body like silk, and a sweet aroma. I would recommend tasting without milk, but this tea is strong enough to add milk if you prefer.

"A beautiful leaf produces an interesting maple colour to the infusion. Wonderful aroma and characteristic, gentle Yunnan flavour. An easy drinker, delicate and well balanced."Great Taste Awards 2019 (2 Stars)

Peregrine Mountain 1st flush

Love this tea. It’s wonderfully smooth with a heavenly aroma and a richness that’s similar to assam but lighter. Perfect breakfast tea.

Peregrine mountain first flush

I love this tea. It has replaced English breakfast tea for my first cuppa of the day. I've had three caddys since I started buying from team tea. I buy a new caddy when I open one so I never run out. Lovely malty morning tea without the bitterness. Fantastic

Good, but yet to find the best way to drink

Received promptly, even in the Christmas post. With it's long leaves it looks great, but I've only tried it once so far and not yet found the best way to drink it. The taste was OK as a black tea, but not outstanding. I'm sure it will be 5 star when I find it :)
