An Approach to 1st flush 2019 Darjeeling teas:
Every year after the autumn flush harvest ends at the 2nd week of December we get to relax and take a break after a full year of work which includes tea tasting to procure the best teas and marketing them well and restore the revenues earned from the teas and keep the finances ready to procure the best teas again when the new harvest starts again during the next working year. This process keeps going on, again and again each year but trust me it does not get boring for us as each year we learn so many new things about the teas we procure from various gardens of Darjeeling and about the markets where we sell the teas every season.
We have been experiencing a draught like situation almost every year during the 1st flush Darjeeling tea harvest but this year we have received rain showers at regular intervals from the last week of January to the 1st week of February, so it will be interesting to see the initial 1st flush Darjeeling teas and it`s quality.
This year the Tea Board of India has instructed all the gardens of Darjeeling to pluck the leaves only after the 11th of February 2019 so that the leaf quality is good and the overall qualities of the new teas are of high quality.
As our retail outlet is based in Darjeeling, India for more than 5 decades and having an in depth knowledge in this trade for last 3 generations we have noticed that the best climatic conditions for good 1st flush Darjeeling teas needs a good amount of rainfall during the winter season when the tea gardens are closed and once the spring season arrives we need good sunshine during and the day and night temperature difference should also be about 9-10 degrees Celsius. We have also noticed that Darjeeling teas made from the young clonal cultivars like AV2 and P312 are commonly favourites among tea lovers these days.
As usual we will taste as much tea samples as possible and procure only the best Darjeeling teas as usual. Please keep visiting our website www.teaemporium.net for further updates on the new 1st flush 2019 Darjeeling teas.
