Grown in the northeast corner among the foot hills of the Himalayan mountains, Darjeeling is a highly sought, coveted black tea.
Graded as FTGFOP1: second flush season.
Renowned for their muscatel characteristics, second flush teas posses a well developed flavour, sweet and smooth with an absolutely remarkable taste.
When compared to a first flush, the brew is slightly darker and the flavour is deeper.
It is the combination of high mountains, steep terrains, well-drained soils, extreme cold and intense heat, as well as a good level of rainfall that contribute to the exquisite muscatel character and floral aroma of Darjeeling teas.
