Exquisite Second Flush Tea

If you love the rich satisfying muscatel aroma of an exquisite second flush Darjeeling tea, these delicious leaves are for you. Highly recommended for breakfast, in the afternoon with luscious chocolate cake or savory sandwiches. A wonderful treat!

Delightfully fresh and fragrant

Being a fan of Darjeeling tea, I very much enjoy this excellent tea from the neighbouring state of Sikkim. It has a very delicate, fresh, clean profile with the right amount of floral and fruity notes, so for me is perfect as an after lunch brew. Yet another winner from Rare Tea!

Swooning

Yes. I said swooning. My (almost) everyday tea is Darjeeling, for the past 20 years. This Sikkim second flush muscatel is. a. maze. ing. Its floral, citrus, muscat notes are sublime, and its fresh fragrance is heady. This tea is pure ambrosia. I fully recognize the melodramatic use of the word swooning, but I stand by it!
