First Flush Darjeeling or Darjeeling first flush tea is affectionately known as Darjeeling tea that is harvested at the perfect time, immediately following spring rains.

Although technically classified as a black tea, first flush Darjeeling tea often has a lighter, greenish color and can be much milder than most black teas. Many first flush Darjeeling teas are low in bitterness, but relatively high in astringency, and can have considerable natural sweetness.

In many respects, these teas more closely resemble greener oolong teas in color, flavor, and aroma because the oxidation is less complete than in most black teas. However, they are usually considered distinct from proper Darjeeling oolongs.
