I don't know if it's first flush, but since on the bag it was not specified, I'd guess it's not.
Here's some pics I just took of the bag, the brewed tea, and... the leaves left in the infuser.http://www.flickr.com/photos/febs/tags/kuwapani/show/
after looking at the expanded leaves I sincerely wondered if it was a black tea or not. Many, maybe most of the leaves, are green, or brown, but definitely not black.
Though, it didn't tasted as a green. Neither looked, after brewed, as one. It is reddish, with the same colour or the rooibos. Maybe this
should be properly named "red tea"?
It's taste was very
delicate, and at the same time bitter (my bad). So I probably have to brew it for less time (lower temperature?) to remove the bitterness, and with more leaves than I did, to get more taste out of it.
Do you know already if it can be brewed more times, or any other nice info about this tea?
