Second flush Darjeelings are known for their brisk, aromatic and refreshing character which are ideal to enjoy during the afternoon as a refined and yet comforting respite from the stresses of the day; as well as being an ideal accompaniment to sweet and savoury nibbles.
Whilst the second flush Darjeeling season is the longest and most bountiful in harvest, the amount produced each season is limited and therefore the race to snap up the very best teas of the season starts at the very beginning of the season with sampling that tests for colour, taste, aroma, leaf size and shape and the amount of tip and bud present in each batch.
We have selected this luxurious, hand-picked tea from the Singbulli estate as a wonderfully tippy 2nd flush and a benchmark example of a superior single estate Darjeeling with a mellow, rounded aromatic taste and typical muscatel notes.
Each box contains 20 Individually Packed Crystal Pyramid Sachets.
Place one sachet into cup. Add freshly boiled water and infuse for 4 minutes. Serve immediately and remove teabag to prevent spoiling. May be enjoyed with milk or lemon to taste.
