Product Options

Elmwood Owner Bruce Richardson visited this historic garden several years ago, soon after it achieved organic certification. This new growth harvest from one of their finest 10-acre hillside fields is called Ultra First Flush, meaning the best from the beginning of the growing season.

Bruce Richardson suggests steeping at 200°F (off boil) for 3 minutes; then try second steeping. Tasting notes: light, floral, with a hint of orchid. Long finish.

A tea can only be called by the trademarked name Darjeeling if it comes from one of 86 gardens in this mountainous area of India that looks toward Mt. Everest. 

This tea is flown-in for maximum freshness.

I am overjoyed to get to taste this exquisite tea. It fills your nose with the most gorgeous floral essence while you sip it. I have never had a tea that was so enjoyable. Thank you for this amazing experience.
