Seeyok 2nd Flush Darjeeling (Organic)
Second flush Darjeeling is judged by many aficionados to be the supreme black tea of the world. The dry leaf has a distinctive “muscatel” aroma. The second flush of the tea has acquired a maturity that so many first flushes lack, smoothing out its rough edges. It is frequently referred to as the champagne of black tea.
Seeyok Estate, established in 1869, is one of the finest organic gardens in Darjeeling. It is located near the border of Darjeeling and Nepal overlooking a lovely and lush Mirik valley. Our second flush is a beautifully balanced Darjeeling with lots of fruit notes.
Use 2 grams of tea for every 6 ounces of water. Generally this works out to a teaspoon per every 6 ounces of water. Steep for 3 minutes with 180 degree water. We recommend this tea as is, but it is also good with milk and/or sweetener.
