After the first flush season ends around mid-April, the tea plants go through a short dormancy until the next growth period - the second flush. Second flush season usually begins in late May and continues through the month of June.

The liquor ranges in color from golden to dark amber, a full-bodied cup that is prized for its “muscatel” character, a ripe fruit quality. Fragrant and rich, notes of honey along with nutty/toasty hints are often found in the flavor.

We source the finest second flush Darjeeling teas the season has to offer, direct from the estates, to provide you with the ultimate tea experience.
