First Flush (Currently Delivering)
During the winter dormancy, Selim Hill fertilises and prepares itself for the coming of
Spring. And Spring appears like a glorious hornbill, with the coming of March. The bushes
develop a dark green texture and the leaves begin flushing as they rise towards the
heavens. The season is still cool and breezy, and the freshness can be felt in your cup.
Dry, greyish green. Our leaves are rough, long, and bold. Like a Persian carpet, the
inconsistency of our leaves is a mark of the authenticity of our product.
Delicate, floral notes, and fresh-cut-field aromas.
The First Flush carries an intensely fruity flavour. Light to Medium-bodied, its bright in
appearance, with a definitive peppermint finish for the aficionado.
Nurtured by the Selim Hill Forest, your First Flush teas are grown under the shadow of the
bamboo groves of the famed Andheri Section at the Estate. Selim Hill’s First Flush is
celebrated in tea rooms and boutiques all over Europe.
Add 2 teaspoons (2.5 g) and steep hot water for 5 minutes. Brew and enjoy the Original
Taste of Darjeeling.
