At long last, we are pleased to offer Season 2020 1st Flush Makaibari - Lot DJ 7/20.  This is our air freight stock.  Because of the Covid-19 lockdowns in India and global flight restrictions, it was extremely difficult to find air carriers and timely connections but it is finally here.  

First Flush is the prize crop of Darjeeling, called 'the champagne of teas".  These are are the first picks of the year, slightly astringent, and an underlying floral tone to the cup.  The color of the dry leaf is a bit darker this year but the tell-tale green tips are still present.  The cup reveals the familiar notes of 1st flush - sharp, crisp and fragrant.  A short steep recommended.  Enjoy the spirit of the Himalayas - Organic, Biodynamic & Fair Trade.

For all those who still wish to pour the previous season's harvest - here's your chance to pick it up at a discount.  Click here for all of Makaibari's bounty!
