Novato, CA (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
The Republic of Tea, leading purveyor of premium teas, today welcomes the arrival of its 2013 First Flush Darjeeling Full-Leaf Organic Tea, the 11th tea introduced in an exclusive series from The Republic of Tea’s Tea Gallery Collection. Carefully selected from the premium organic tea plants of the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Phoobsering Estate, one of the oldest plantations in the western Darjeeling valley, this rare organic tea is prized for its young leaves that yield the most delicate of flavors.
The first flush, or first plucking, of spring in Northern India’s famed tea-growing region of Darjeeling brings forth the singular sweet flavor of these superior, aromatic leaves. This Gluten-Free, Kosher tea from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ gardens infuses a bright, light-bodied cup reminiscent of a fine white tea. Organic tea leaves bring forth lovely floral aromas and a sweet, lingering finish with notes of muscat grapes and lychee fruit. This special reserve tea is of such superior quality that only very limited quantities can be air-freighted from origin for Citizens to sip and experience.
To celebrate the first plucking of each year, a unique artist is asked to develop artwork specific to that year’s first flush Darjeeling full-leaf tea. In honor of this year’s tea, the 2013 First Flush Darjeeling Full-Leaf Organic Tea features artwork created by Brazilian artist, Gomes De Souza.
The 2013 First Flush Darjeeling Full-Leaf Organic Tea is available in a full-sized recyclable 3.5 oz. (100 g) tin (steeps 50-60 cups) and has a suggested retail price of $25. It is available for purchase nationwide through the company website (http://www.REPUBLICofTEA.com) and by calling 800.298.4TEA (4832).
