Second Flush Darjeeling is the Tea Loved by the Majority of Darjeeling Drinkers...as Prized as First Flush Darjeeling is, it is More Delicate and Lighter With Almost a Yellow Tea Broth.
This Second Flush has a somewhat deeper character with the classic "Muscatel" aroma that gives this tea the reputation for being the "Champagne" of black teas...This organic version is wonderful...
This "Champagne of Black Teas" grows a mile high in the Himalayan foothills if India. Although this highly revered tea grows in the Indian soils of the Himalayan mountains, the plants themselves were smuggled from China during the Opium Wars and planted in the British colony to reduce dependence on China teas.
Now, over 200 years later, the outstanding leaves of Darjeeling give us delightful high-mountain black teas that have earned the title of "The Champagne of Black Teas" because of their golden tones in the broth, and the aroma nuance of the Muscat grape.
