This late spring harvest ("second flush") tea produces a dark, rich cup that still has the light flavor of a classic early harvest Darjeeling tea.

  • Description


    This tea was an absolute surprise to our tasting team. Richard said, “It blew me away.” In Darjeeling, the late spring harvest (called “second flush” in the world of tea) usually offers a darker cup with a slightly flatter flavor than the early harvest “first flush.”  However, when we cupped through samples of "second flush" teas from our favorite garden in Darjeeling, we came across this lot from mid-May and immediately knew we wanted it. It offers a dark, rich cup that still has the airiness of classic early harvest Darjeeling tea. It is smooth and creamy on the pallet with none of the maltiness of an Assam, but with hints of apple at the top of the palate followed by generous smooth fallen-leaf sensation across the mid-palate and finish. It is a great mid-morning pick-me-up.
