This year's first harvest of Darjeeling has a long-lasting and powerful taste with aromas of peach, apricot and tropical flowers.
At the beginning of the growing season, new shoots appear on the tea bush. These shoots have two leaves and a bud. (The bud does not refer to a flower shoot as in a regular flower, but to future unopened leaves.) When these leaves and a bud are plucked for the first time in the season, it is called the "first flush." They contain the most catechins (antioxidants), L-theanine (a central stimulant) and caffeine of all the flushes.
They also tend to have a very delicate taste and a bright green tinge in colour.
An organic product is produced in a way that takes the environment into account by not using chemical and synthetic pesticides. It's good for the planet, but also for the tea, the farmer and you. By buying organic teas, you support healthy and long-term tea production.
We are proud to be the largest Norwegian brand importer of organic tea. To be approved by Debio and use the definition Organic, not only must the ingredients be certified organic, but our own plant must also be certified by Debio and controlled by Mattsilynet.
In addition to import controls from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, we go beyond the requirements by also taking random samples for pesticides/pesticides and other pollutants.
It is important that tea is stored protected from air and light. That's why we sell all our teas packed in tight aluminum bags with a zip lock.
