Second Flush Darjeeling Tea

Nestled in the Himalayan Mountains of West Bengal, India, the Darjeeling region is well known for its lush, rolling hills and breathtaking views. There are several flushes each growing season in Darjeeling, the most well-known being first flush and second flush. A “flush” is a period of time when the tea plants grow new leaves that are then harvested by hand or machine.

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.
