First flush Darjeeling teas, such as the First Flush Spring Darjeeling Organic and the First Flush Darjeeling Badamtam, are produced from the youngest, most succulent shoots of the tea-growing season. They are delicate in colour, fragrance and taste.
Second flush Darjeelings, meanwhile, are harvested later in the spring. Their flavour is more intense and full-bodied, and their colour a warm golden-amber. The Second Flush Darjeeling Summer Gold Organic and the Second Flush Darjeeling Margaret's Hope are fine examples of all that a second flush Darjeeling has to offer.
