Second Flush Darjeelings

The famed Darjeeling summer teas are produced from mid-May until mid- June, when the monsoon rains arrive. These are very attractive teas, with purplish bloom and silvery tips, and fetch the highest prices of any flush. The rich and aromatic liquors show the prized muscatel flavor and color. The infused leaf is a bright coppery penny color. Like fine wine, Second Flush Darjeeling can benefit from age if properly stored.
