Brewing instructions


Darjeeling First Flush Poobong comes from the Poobong Tea estate of Darjeeling, West Bengal, India. The name “Poobong” means literally “a valley behind the clouds”, which sounds mystical but also has some truth to it owing to the area being frequently coated in fog. And it is these unique conditions that provide Darjeeling First Flush Poobong Tea with its unique character and flavour, qualities that seem to transcend upon the first sip.

But when it’s not treating your taste buds, Darjeeling 1st Flush Tea Poobong is aiding in the improvement of everyday life by boasting some truly incredible health benefits. In fact, science has long established that, when consumed as part of a healthy and active lifestyle, any Black Tea - including Darjeeling 1st Flush Poobong Tea - can lower cholesterol, boost the metabolism, reduce the risks of Type II Diabetes, and even enhance cognitive function.

Ultimately, Darjeeling 1st Flush Poobong is the gift that keeps on giving regardless of your reasons for choosing it. You may wish to “be the change in your life” by taking a healthier path, in which case Darjeeling 1st Flush Poobong cannot be passed up. Alternatively, that same change may come in the form of indulging more often while finding more time to relax, and again, Darjeeling 1st Flush Poobong can help there, too.

But why choose Darjeeling 1st Flush Poobong over, say, another Darjeeling First Flush Tea from a different estate? Selecting your new favourite beverage is very much a personal choice dependent on numerous factors, but it is also important to note that Darjeeling 1st Flush Poobong has a lot to offer. The Poobong estate itself, for example, is one such factor that will likely sway you. It is located near Ghoom, Darjeeling, and is one of the smaller estates of the district; however, what it lacks in size it makes up for in quality.

At an elevation ranging from 3,000 to 5,000 feet, the Poobong Tea Estate is renowned for its scrumptious teas, with Darjeeling 1st Flush Poobong being no exception. And yet little else is known on the story of Poobong aside from it having been established in the early 1900’s. Instead, much of its history is up in the air, brushing through a valley behind the clouds.

Type of Tea: Loose Leaf Black Tea.

Origin: The Poobong estate, Darjeeling, West Bengal, India.

Brewing Instructions: Brew using freshly boiled water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes.

How to Serve: To appreciate fully the divine taste of Darjeeling 1st Flush Poobong, we recommend serving it black; however, many choose to enjoy it with milk, with sugar, with honey, or with lemon. That choice is yours.

Tasting Notes: Many Darjeeling Teas are associated with a delicate taste; Darjeeling 1st Flush Poobong is befitting of that association. It is smooth and refreshing to the last drop and will never fail to please the palate.

Colour in Cup: Amber liquor, light in tone.

Health Benefits: Most of us have long been aware of the well-documented health benefits of frequent tea consumption. Many of these benefits have been repeated time and time again but sometimes, it is the most understated benefits that have the greatest potential. According to new research, chronic stress disrupts our sleep and our blood sugar levels. This leads to increased hunger and comfort eating.

Eventually, this can lead to even higher levels of stress and even more disrupted blood sugars. Not only might this cause unhealthy levels of body fat, but also an increased risk of Type II Diabetes! The solution to this is simple: stopping, sitting, and enjoying a cup of Darjeeling 1st Flush Poobong. Whoever said you couldn’t improve your health by doing pretty much nothing?

  1. Lovely soft mellow flavours, pleasing to drink at anytime, found it best without milk, would suggest if you want milk go for skimmed, full fat does not let the teas complex flavours come through
