From Tea Campaign Canada

First Flush is the first tea harvested annually, from the end of February until the end of April. It is bright in colour, has a light, flowery flavour and a light body. First Flush Darjeelings are sought after teas around the world.

All First Flush teas are certified organic by IMO Switzerland. The teas for our blends are selected from NATURLAND-certified tea gardens in Darjeeling.

All teas have been tested by SOFIA GmbH Berlin, Germany, for 508 possible chemical residues. The results are printed on the reverse of each package.

Tea gardens: Bannackburn, Dhajea, Ging, Lingia, Marybong, Nagrifarm, Phoosbering, Pussimbing, Shree Dwarika, Soom, Tukdah, and Tumsong.

642 tasting notes

2.25 tsp for 500mL water @90C, steeped four minutes, drunk bare.

Dry leaf: brown, amber, tan, and green, with a few twigs. Some muscatel in the aroma.

Wet leaf: gorgeous big leaf pieces, astringent scent.

Liqour: light copper-amber in colour.

I’ve not had good Darjeeling for a long time. This fblend is robust for a first flush, bright and sparkly, a bit astringent — I expect I used too much leaf — and loaded with muscatel flavour notes. Just gorgeous.

Tea Campaign Canada is part of the German Teekampagne, and this company treats tea growers and harvesters well. Prices are low because this cmpany sells only Darjeeling and only in bulk — smallest packets are 250 grams. Certified as Darjeeling by the Tea Board of India. Certified organic.

Highly recommend.


Darjeeling doesn’t get a lot of airplay at my house. Perhaps I should make amends!

Darjeelings make me swoon with joy, and it was my gateway to oolongs, to learning to pick out and start to appreciate all the nuances a tea
can have.


Here’s to swoon-worthy teas!
