Tasting Notes This is one of the best of First Flush teas made at Giddapahar - one of Vahdam's premier partner estates. The slightly astringent and bright cup has a distinctively fresh and floral flavor profile, Giddpahar first flush teas are what classic first flush Darjeeling tea is all about.

Giddapahar Tea Estate Among the smallest tea estates in Darjeeling, Giddapahar makes up for size with quality. Giddapahar means Eagle’s Cliff (Gidda = Eagle and Pahar = mountain or cliff). It was started in 1881 by the Shaw family and has been in the same family for four generations. The chinese bushes with some clonal bushes are grown between 4500-5200 feet. The teas from Giddapahar are produced from the delicate leaves and buds of the chinese bushes, which create a light yellow cup with a mellow taste. But it is the exquisite and characteristic floral, fragrant flavour that makes teas from Giddapahar highly sought after by connoisseurs all over the world. VAHDAM’s TEAch Me initiative has been supporting the education of children of the tea estate workers at Giddpahar for the last few years.
