Darjeeling 2nd Flush, Oaks Estate

Darjeeling 2nd Flush, Oaks Estate


Darjeeling 2nd Flush teas are produced in northern India, from the second growth of tea plants in the late spring. Stronger than their 1st Flush counterparts, these teas are celebrated for their rich fragrance, nuanced taste, and beautiful copper-colored liquor.

This lot is from the organic Oaks Estate, which is in the Sonada Valley region of Darjeeling. The large, dark brown leaves are consistent in size, and yield a sweet aroma of fresh and dried apricot. The flavor is rich but well balanced, with notes of walnut and clove peppering a pleasant fruitiness. This full, medium-bodied cup is a superlative example of its type.
