Sungma First Flush


After a difficult season in the hills of Darjeeling, this beautiful first flush tea from Sungma Estates emerges as forerunner. Darker than previous flushes, this tea nonetheless carries strong flavors of tropical fruit, floral aromatics, and brews up to be smooth, refreshing, and gently sweet. Full-bodied without being heavy, the gentle flavors of this Darjeeling make for a superb brew. A superb way to start the morning, or infuse a bit of energy into a drowsy afternoon.
