First Flush Tea is our finest harvest from Manjhee Valley Estate.

First Flush~ Is a black tea, but arguably can be called Oolong ( as our first flush tea goes through very light oxidation resulting in light yellow cup). Spring Flush is the first harvest of any tea estate. And in Manjhee Valley, our estate in Dharamsala, Himachal Pardesh, India is the months of Mid March to May end.

This is the season the plant has just woken up from its winter hibernation and has the highest level of flavor. Manjhee Valley First Flush is floral and woody. Very much liked in Europe.

Method of Infusion

To absorb the essence of Anandini Himalaya Tea. Infuse a teaspoon of First Flush Tea in water that has been heated to 95 degrees C or till the water reaches its first boil. Cover for 3 minutes. Strain & sip delight.

Note: The first pluck of the tea season (the tea season in India is from the month of February to November). The teas made in the month of February, March and May months are termed First Flush. Therefore it is very rich in aroma and taste. It is a highly prized crop. Beside that it is also called the spring crop. After the last plucking in the month of November, the tea bushes go through a dormancy period. They stock up the nutrients and essential oils which leads to the first pluck being highly flavorful. The first flush plucking of the tea lasts through February, March, and April.  

Myth: Orange Pekoe does not refer to the tea having orange flowers in it. It refers to a type of pluck. It means that the tea comes from two leaves and a bud ( the unopened leaf that is adjacent to the two leaves)
