Darjeeling Second Flush Supreme Black Tea
The Origin Story
We are delighted to present this fantastic example of Darjeeling Second Flush Supreme from the organic Aloobari estate. Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, Darjeeling’s cooler and damper climate offers the perfect conditions for tea to flourish and produce tea of unrivalled quality and complexity.
Our Darjeeling Second Flush Supreme is composed of fine tender two leaves and a bud, hand-picked from selected tea bushes within the Aloobari Estate. The delicate leaves are carefully handled to retain the inherent properties of the succulent leaves.
A long oxidisation gives the tea a full bodied infusion, malty fragrance and notes of ripe fruit. What struck us most about this tea is its rich mouthfeel and unique syrupy sweetness - miles apart from anything we have tasted this year and in the last few years.
This is a must-try for any Darjeeling tea lover.
Aloobari estate, one of Darjeeling's first tea estates, is home to our Darjeeling Second Flush Supreme
In 1840, the first tea seeds were planted and started to thrive at the Aloobari Tea Estate and with it was born the Darjeeling Tea Industry. A hundred and seventy six years on, some of those bushes are still there and produce some incredible tea.
