About Second Flush Darjeeling:

Tea-making in Darjeeling has distinct seasons, with early plucking beginning in late March. After a brief period of re-growth, the second plucking, or Second Flush, generally occurs in late April, May or June.  The flavors vary with the season and are dependent on the climate and processing technique. Second Flush teas tend to be stronger than the First Flush, and therefore are sought after by tea-drinkers who enjoy heartier, more full-bodied teas.

Ingredients: 100% Organic Black Tea Leaves.

Flavor Profile:

Distinct, hearty, muscatel flavor.
