    Tasting Notes
    Appearance - Dark tan, well-rolled leaves with specks of delicate golden tips.
    Aroma - Remarkably fresh and sweet-woody aroma with a lingering whiff of pine and orchids.
    Taste - Bright, crisp, and mellow cup with an enveloping sweetness balanced with the right levels of astringency, with teasing accents of melons and grape around the edges finished with lingering end notes of toasted nuts.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What makes Second Flush Teas highly prized around the world?

    Post the first tea harvest called the 'First Flush', Second Flush follows between May to June. The tea leaves are picked and are characterized as well-rounded, fruity and mature, flavoured tea leaves. Tea brewed from these leaves is less astringent and more improved than the First Flush.

    What is the shelf life of your products?

    Please refer to the 'The Date of Expiry' that is mentioned on the product

    How are the Teas packaged?

    After sourcing our teas directly from plantations within hours of harvest, we bring them to our state-of-the-art tea facility in New Delhi, India. The teas then go through rigorous rounds of cleaning, sorting, quality testing to remove any impurities/dust/foreign particles. Post 10+ quality checkpoints for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors, etc., these are vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminium-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperature-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Further, required quantities are packed in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centers located in various parts of the world.
