About this tea

Tea Story

“Second flush” is by no means “second rate”; it refers to the high-quality growing period of late May through June. At the famed Calcutta Tea Auctions, the competition for the handful of top quality lots can be intense, and prices follow quality. We felt this Darjeeling Extra Fancy Kalimpong was worth every penny for its muscat grape character, complex floral notes and lively, brisk astringency. “Kalimpong” is not an estate name, but a town on the Eastern edge of Darjeeling that was once a stop on the ancient trade route between India and Tibet.

Brewing Tips

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 1 spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to a rolling boil; steep tea for 4 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring.
