What is the first flush tea?
First flush tea is the tea made from the very first pluckings of a tea harvest season. These leaves are the youngest and tenderest and are highly valued among premium teas. The recent heavy winter rains in Bengal region has raised hopes of a bumper harvest of first flush crops in the tea belts. The rains have reduced the need for artificially irrigation which accounts for 20% of the production cost.
