An Approach to 1st flush 2018 Darjeeling tea
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.
