Brewing instructions

The monsoon rains appear during the first flush, a period of peak seasonal quality of an Darjeeling. The rain ensures that the estates soil remains wet for cultivating tea while the hillsides ensure that all roots are kept perfectly drained. Temperatures are cool, much cooler than in the neighbouring growing region of Assam which creates the differentiating brew.
