The Bigelow Tea team is flush with excitement and ready to share some important news from the Charleston Tea Garden! The very first tea leaves of the season were recently harvested, and that means American Classic First Flush® Loose Tea is now stocked and ready for sale! This unique black tea comes out only once a growing season and is made entirely from tea plants grown at the tea garden on South Carolina’s Wadmalaw Island.
This “First Flush” tea is produced from the leaves of the tea plants’ new growth for the season, which is called their “first flush.” The leaves from this early part of the growing season produce a smooth and mellow flavor for a truly pure and fresh cup of fine tea.
But First Flush® quantities are quite limited, so be sure to get yours soon! It’s easy to purchase First Flush® Loose Tea through the Bigelow Tea website and have it shipped directly to you, or if you happen to be near the tea garden, do stop by the gift shop to buy your tea there. Each 2.3-ounce canister, which is a lovely shade of ivory, costs $15. Try it, and don’t be shy about sharing what you think about this very special tea via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram!
