This second flush lot hits all the right notes one would expect from a fine Darjeeling. The liquor is a golden amber color with a bold, exceptional flavor. It has a smooth cup and has a well balanced body which tends to be sweet. Tea plucked in the Darjeeling region of India during the second growing season ("2nd flush"), between June and August, is noted for its highly prized muscat grape notes and is referred to as "muscatel Darjeeling".
