Darjeeling Second Flush 2017 is here!

Organic Darjeeling Second Flush 2017

We are pleased to offer organic Darjeeling Second Flush from India’s Single Tea Estate! Available in house, in bulk, and on our online tea store.

  • Second Flush means summer harvest
  • Bold, full-bodied, smooth muscatel flavor
  • Deep amber color infusion

The second tea harvest takes place just before the rainy season, over fifty days from the end of May to early July. The leaves used in Darjeeling Second Flush are larger, more mature, and less tender than the First Flush. The color of the infusion is darker, and this tea has more body. The flowery, astringent flavor and superb muscatel aroma of the teas picked at this time has led to comparisons with the famous wines of Bordeaux. The tea is composed of rather small green-yellow leaves with darker tips.
