An Approach to 2nd flush 2018 Darjeeling tea
An approach to 2nd flush 2018 Darjeeling teas:
We are again very excited to select the finest 2nd flush 2018 Darjeeling teas for our tea lover friends living all over the world. The 2nd flush harvest is of the most important harvest of Darjeeling tea industry as during this period the teas produced in Darjeeling hill has a unique “muscatel” flavour which tea lovers all around the world compare with the Muscat wine or Muscat grapes. Tea experts even claim that this is such a unique character in Darjeeling tea during 2nd flush harvest that no other tea growing area in the world can replicate this character.
The ideal time for 2nd flush harvest in Darjeeling is last week of May to last week of June but this year we are seeing some early 2nd flush teas as tea bushes were pruned early last year in most of the garden of Darjeeling after the strikes. For a perfect 2nd flush harvest the night and day temperature difference should not be more than 12-15 degrees Celsius .The finest muscatel 2nd flush teas are made from the most dehydrated leaves and buds. A perfect 2nd flush Darjeeling tea should have dark golden orange liquor, with fully brown infused leaves. The flavour should remind of dark chocolates and Muscat grapes and should have a sweet and strong after taste. These are the few thumb rules that we follow while choosing the finest teas in 2nd flush harvest.
We taste about 40 cups of different teas from various gardens of Darjeeling everyday and have already started choosing the best teas. We will inform all our tea lover friends after the selections are completed and the 2nd flush list is ready.
Till then we appreciate your patience and thank you for reading this article. Please keep visiting our website for best of Darjeeling tea harvests.
