The 1st flush 2018 Darjeeling tea harvest is about to start and some gardens in Darjeeling have already started the initial rounds of plucking and production. The tea pluckers in the gardens are plucking and removing the old and winter leaves from the bushes so that the bushes can conceive fresh shoots and buds which are used to produce the fresh finest 1st flush Darjeeling teas. During this period of time we need some heavy rainfall so that the tea bushes can get enough water to conceive new shoots and buds after 2 months of dormancy.
During this harvest we have recently seen that the best teas are specially made from the clonal bushes like the AV2 and P312.The teas made from the china bushes usually start late and start coming in from the mid weeks of March and are also very delicious.
As usual our focus is on the early production teas( teas plucked and made from the first young buds and shoots).Since the early harvest teas are made from the most tender shoots and buds the cup is extremely fragrant and delicious and the quantity produced is also very less. So, we have to taste as much tea samples, as soon as possible and decide to choose the right batch very fast. We also have to keep in mind that the teas should have good shelve lives and mature very well as we will offer these premium teas around the year.
We request all our tea lover friends all around the world to keep visiting our website www.teaemporium.net for updates of the fresh and best quality 1st flush 2018 Darjeeling teas.

An Approach to Autumn flush 2017:
The Autumn flush 2017 Darjeeling tea harvest in Darjeeling started around the 3rd week of October 2017. This year`s harvest was very different from previous year`s harvest due to the 104 days of strikes in Darjeeling from the month of mid June. Tea leaves from tea bushes were not plucked for more than 3 months and the overall gardens were filled with wild plants. So, the workers of various gardens were busy pruning the tea bushes so that we could get a very good 1st flush harvest next year.
The quantity of pure Autumn flush Darjeeling teas are very less this year and after intense tea tasting we have selected 3 top quality Autumn flush 2017 Darjeeling teas this year from Puttabong, Upper Namring and Margaret`s Hope tea estates.These teas are produced in very limited quantities during the peak Autumn flush harvest.
We are sure everyone will appreciate these high quality teas this season from our list.

An Approach to Autumn flush 2016 Darjeeling teas:
The last and the much awaited harvest in the Darjeeling tea industry is the Autumn flush harvest. After 4 long months of rains we will finally get to taste some fine and high flavour Darjeeling teas from the various plantations of Darjeeling. During the monsoon period the teas produced in Darjeeling gives a strong cup with less flavour.
The Autumn flush harvest lasts for a very small frame of time as it starts as soon as the monsoons are over and the tea bushes starts getting continuous sunshine and high climatic temperature during the day time and cold climatic conditions during the night. For a perfect autumn flush harvest the day and night temperature difference should not be more than 9-12 degrees Celsius. A perfect Autumn flush Darjeeling tea should have a dehydrated look in the dry leaf state, it should have a dark brownish dry leaf appearance. The cup should give out a bright orange liquor ,with a chocolate like flavour and each sip should be very fruity floral with clear hints of dry winter leaves like smell that we usually get in the forests during the winters.
This year it seems that the Autumn flush Darjeeling tea harvest is slightly late as it rained very heavily during the early weeks of October and in November we are finally getting some very sunny days. We are expecting very good Autumn flush Darjeeling teas this year and right after the Diwali holidays (from the 1st week of November) are over, we are expecting the Autumn flush harvest to start, we are continuously tasting the samples of Darjeeling teas from various plantations of Darjeeling and as usual we will select only the best Darjeeling teas.
