Countdown to the First Flush - 1

Countdown to the First Flush - 1

March 23, 2018

Robert Bell, Managing Director and fourth generation of the Bell family firm, visits Darjeeling next month for the early First Flush tea pickings.

"The Champagne of Teas", is a Product of Denominated Origin. Such protected status means that it can only be cultivated, grown, produced, manufactured and processed in tea gardens in the District of Darjeeling in the State of West Bengal, India, grown on picturesque steep slopes up to 4000 m.

Robert will be visiting the tea gardens of Darjeeling, in the Himalayan foothills, in the second week of April and will be holding an exclusive Tasting Evening on his return. Avid tea aficionados may sample and learn more about the 2018 First Flush. Spaces will be limited so early booking is recommended.

In the countdown between now and Robert’s trip we will be running a series of blogs about the history and botany of First Flush. Stay tuned for these weekly instalments and to find out more about booking in to our exclusive Tasting Evening.
