Our delicious trio of 2011 2nd flush Darjeeling teas have just arrived. Air-shipped to us for freshness and immediacy. We have been able to keep them at the same low prices as last year, too, which makes us very happy.
We selected a rich and juicy selection from Thurbo garden and added it to the mix this season. Our cupping selection of 10 different 2nd flush teas posed a tasting dilemna as most of the teas were quite teasty. Nevertheless, we zeroed in on what to us were clearly the most well-made, top teas, and ordered those from Jungpana, Sourenee and Thurbo gardens.
Not sure what the taste difference is between seasonal teas such as 1st and 2nd flush Darjeeling? We suggest a comparative tasting from each season of Jungpana or Sourenee garden 1st and 2nd flush, and experience for yourself the changes that nature brings to the tea in different seasons.
