The Second Flush Darjeeling Tea Experience: nature in tea form
This pure, unblended, organic single-estate Darjeeling tea captures the incredible beauty and biodiversity of Darjeeling, India, all the way from its windswept mountains and monsoon rains to its lush forests, expansive tea gardens, and abundant fruits and flowers.
Tasting Notes: herbaceous, floral, clean
Clean, bright and light flavors are key in this organic Darjeeling tea. Sweet notes of fresh-cut wildflowers, white grapes and just-ripe nectarines are gently balanced with an herbaceous, woodsy character that is prized in spring harvested Darjeeling teas.
Ingredients: Organic Indian black tea from Sungma Estate.
- 1.5 tsp Per Cup
- 2-4 Minutes
Savoring Your Experience:
New to single-estate Darjeeling teas? Try steeping this one for two to three minutes, then adjust to taste. We recommend drinking Darjeeling tea WITHOUT any milk or sugar, and steeping the leaves two to three times before composting them.
If you like, pair this delicate black tea with light, simple, sweet foods, such as meringues, angel food cake, toast with jam, yogurt with granola, or a fruit salad based around fresh, organic peaches and berries.
Darjeeling tea is often touted as the world's best tea. It is a mountainous area replete with nature preserves, abundant foliage and wildlife, and some of the world's most famous tea gardens.
Each tea estate's tea is unique, and drinking a single-estate Darjeeling is vastly different from drinking a blend. Single-estate Darjeeling teas (such as our tea from Sungma Tea Estate) change each year due to variations in the weather, and they offers far more nuanced, complex cups of tea than blends can.
