Untouched by modernisation, Orthodox tea is traditional, authentic black tea plucked & processed by hands, and was once highly prized during colonial times (hence named, Colonial Spring Black Tea). How do you know it’s the first flush? When the leaves ooze a subtle green hue instead of the regular black colour, it’s a clear indication of them being the most tender product of the very first plucking of the harvest season.
