Tea Chronicles: What is Second Flush Tea?

Second flush tea is as distinct as the first flush tea. It is harvested and manufactured in the months of April end to June. The cup appears to be bright and the taste is well rounded and bold.

The leaves plucked are more mature and the flavors are more pronounced compared to a cup of first flush tea. This indeed is perfect as an afternoon tea with sandwiches and scones smothered with homemade jam.

Please note, all regions growing tea manufacture second flush tea. It does not pertain to only tea manufactured in Darjeeling, India.
