Darjeeling 2nd Flush

New Mexico Tea Company
s
  • Spoon 1 tsp Per Cup
  • Kettle 190°F
  • Timer 3 Min

The Second Flush in Darjeeling produces mature, more rounded flavors than the First Flush. Plucked in the early summer months of May and June, this stylishly rolled leaf is made from select shoots that draw their succulence from the late spring showers.

This Darjeeling is full-bodied and mellow and has a delicate flowery bouquet with a long finish. The liquor is a much deeper, more rich amber than a First Flush Darjeeling.

Extra Info:

Tea in North India is produced for about nine months of the year, from May and June. The same tea plant may be plucked (harvested) thirty times during this period. Teas produced from the same plant, but during a different time of the year can produce a very different tasting tea because of a change in the environmental conditions, mainly the weather and season, which will affect the growing conditions. A good tea maker has to be very sensitive to these changes and may have to fine-tune his processes on a daily basis to get the best results. There is no machine that can help him, and he must rely on his finely tuned "nose". The tea that you will receive will be from a single "batch" of tea produced on a particular day of a particular season.

Ingredients:

FTGFOP1 Darjeeling black tea
