Getmytea Darjeeling Second Flush Teas are harvested between end May and July and produce an amber, full-bodied and bright tea cup. The tea leaves are picked and are characterized as well-rounded and matured. The distinct muscatel flavor is a combination of unique weather, topography, and plant types. Many tea connoisseurs prefer the second flush because of this unique flavor.
The meaning of “Getmytea Single Estate”
The word “Single Estate” means that this selection of Getmytea tea is plucked and manufactured in one tea estate and does not contain any blends of chemical-full or adulterated cheaper teas.
What makes this tea so special
This Classic Second Flush is specially made for Getmytea from the finest clones from the highest elevated section of Gopaldhara Tea Estate, in the Mirik hills of Darjeeling in North East India which is one of the highest tea estates in Darjeeling. The tea has a woody character with rare muscatel flavour and a special tinge of sweetness, which makes the second flush so distinctive. It has brownish leaves with random tips that brew into dark orange liquor. The cup is medium-bodied with musky notes and a fresh aroma to fall in love with. The tea is very smooth with no harsh tones. The plucking is of such fine quality that the tea only needs to be hand sorted and the machines used to make the tea are very less. The garden workers are very careful in their plucking by hand to make sure only the best shoots with prominent buds are plucked. This tea is also made in the same way but it is sufficiently oxidized to ensure that all the exquisite flavors are prominently present.
