Organic Makaibari 2nd Flush 2018#2540
Farmed on the Makaibari Estate established in 1859 and home of the worlds best Darjeeling's. The 2nd Flush is made from the new growth of the tea plant a few months after the first harvest of the year referred to as the "second flush". It offers a darker liquor and stronger body than the first flush, with far less "green" character. This 2018 2nd Flush tea is no exception. Exquisite aroma, amber color, muscatel grape notes and adequate astringency.
Use 1 teaspoon per 8 oz. cup of water. Bring water to a boil and pour over tea leaves. Steep 3 minutes.
Water temperature: 205-210 ºF
