This year, we were lucky to this early tea. It is the 12th production (Dj 12) of 2022. Risheehat is located in the valley under the city of Darjeeling. We have visited it a few times. It is a stunning Estate owned by Jayshree with many steep valleys.

Risheehat 1st Flush is a greenish first flush Darjeeling tea with lovely tropical notes and light body. 

If you brew like a green tea, less heat and less time than a black tea, it tastes great.

Details: Mike visited this beautiful estate on his last trip to Darjeeling. The factory sits on top of a steep hill, yet still below the city of Darjeeling. It is owned by the great tea producer: Jayshree. Jayshree also makes our Assams. This First Flush Darjeeling is done in the modern, ultra green style. This accents the tropical fruit flavors, but makes for a brisker and lighter cup.
Dry Leaves: Green twisted leaves
Liquor: Dark yellow
Aroma: Haunting tropical fruits
Flavors: Lovely passion fruit, grapefruit and other tropical flavors.
Caffeine Level:
Caffeinated
Body: Light-bodied
Brewing Time:

Brewing Temp: 175º
