A flush is a harvest of tea, and this perfect tea lovers gift box contains four flushes taken over a year at one of Nudo’s tea gardens in Darjeeling. Each flush has its own unique characteristic, reflecting the season, from the divinely delicate first flush to the dark and robust monsoon flush.
The ‘Champagne of tea’ has been grown in the Darjeeling region of India for over 150 years. The perfect conditions for growing tea are a result of the cool mountain winds, blown over the snowy peaks of the Himalayas, mixing with sun-drenched heat shimmering up from the plains below.
The ideal measurement is 1 cup of water and 1 teaspoon of tea leaves per person, and seep for no longer than 3-4 minutes.
Pour the water from the kettle into the teacup first and then into the teapot, to ensure the water is at the optimal temperature and that leaves won't stew and will be ready for a second or third infusion.
