FTGFOP 1. Founded in 1852, Steinthal is one of the oldest gardens in Darjeeling. Many of the original plants still thrive in a place where the tradition has been First Flush excellence. Fresh and herbaceous with subtle muscatel peeking through, the Steinthal packs a sizeable bite with the hallmark astringency that First Flush fans adore.

I am a fan of the Steinthal First Flush since the first time I tried. It has a very particular taste which goes beyond the other first flushs I know. I find the word astringency quite discriptive, after having figured out on wikidpedia what it really means. People who like pure black tea, have to try this one, it is simply fantastic.
