The long wait after the winter dormancy is now over.The first leaves have started to arrive and the tea as usual is profound.First flush teas have very prominent fresh flavour and one simply breath taking.The teas are very mildly oxidized and very delicately processed to induce minimal damage.All oxidation is natural and over night with nothing being induced forcefully except some few rounds of hand bruising to develop some flavour.The cup is very light on the palate, with a mouthful flavour and complete with clean notes and smooth finish without any hint of astringency."Jethi Kupi" Jethikupi is a word from the Manipuri dialect and it means 'Jasmine flower". In Nepali dialect the word "Jethi" means the eldest girl child while "Kupi" is a funnel or cone shaped.So it points out to the earliest first flush of any Darjeeling gardens
