Darjeeling Tea - Second Flush Black Tea

The Origin Story

Our tippy Darjeeling Second Flush tea encapsulates the best of the summer season of this famous region. Lighter and more fragrant than other Indian black teas, this particular darjeeling tea combines warming and comforting aromatic flavours with a deeply refreshing taste and enough body to make it a classic afternoon tea.

India - Darjeeling

Darjeeling, at the base of the Himalayas, produces uniquely fragrant black teas

Darjeeling is a land of rolling foothills set against a backdrop of snow-capped Himalayan peaks. Historically under the control of neighbouring Sikkim and Nepal, the British established Darjeeling as a hill-station getaway from the intense heat of summer. In attempting to break the Chinese monopoly on tea production, tea bushes were planted here from seed in 1841 and flourished. Growing the China variety bush and being at high altitude gives Darjeeling teas many similar characteristics to the highest quality Chinese teas. Darjeeling predominantly produces black teas in two distinct "flushes". The first flush teas in March are light and sweet whilst the summer second flush teas give a heavier cup of complex aromas, most sought-after being the characteristic muscatel redolent of muscat grapes.

    Subtle as a Darjeeling should be. However, I do not boil the water for such a tea. Keep it at 90 °. I have a kettle setting temperatures. Absolutely delicious.

    Subtle yet assertive. Aromatic. Both warming AND refeshing. One of the most balanced and satisfactory 2nd flush Darjeelings you can find online.
