2nd Flush Darjeeling


Sale Price

The second flush of Darjeeling tea begins high in the Himalayan foothills in late May and lasts about 45 days. Around this time, tea gardens produce teas of wonderfully complex flavors of butter, nuts, flowers and fruits with balanced astringency and a sweet toasty finish. Teas produced during this period have a fuller flavor than teas from first flush.

Tasting Notes:Muscatel grape, wintergreen and caramel

For best flavor, bring spring or freshly drawn filtered water to a boil (212 degrees). Steep 1 rounded tsp (2.7 g) loose leaf for five minutes. Repeat your mantra (if your have one.)

2nd Flush Darjeeling

Indian Black Tea

Darjeeling, once a British hill station, is known for producing some of the world’s most prized and expensive teas. The high elevation of Darjeeling tea gardens puts stress on the bushes and results in teas of exceptionally nuanced flavor. Teas produced during this period have fuller flavor than teas from the first flush, with notes of muscatel grape, burnt sugar and cedar.
