For The World's Greatest Teas

Darjeeling second flush tea

Darjeeling Second Flush teas: noted for their smoothness and body.

Darjeeling Second flush teas are picked in May and June. They have greater body and less astringency or briskness, than first flush teas.

However, they have a more fruity character because of natural changes as the leaf matures in response to the unique growing environment. It is still the classic two leaves and a bud that are meticulously picked.

The leaf is darker and more brownish but the tip is still clearly apparent. All these teas have that wonderfully captivating muscatel character. Should be drunk without milk.
