Fun Facts or Useless Information...You Decide:

Darjeeling tea is grown in the Darjeeling district of West Bengal, India and is often referred to as "the champagne of teas". It has three major flushes (harvests). The first flush takes place mid-March to May, the second flush is from June to mid-August, and the third flush (also known as autumn flush) occurs October to November.

First flush: The color of the tea is light and clear. The tea leaves have a flowery scent that is bright and distinct. Due to their freshness and color, the first flush teas are generally more expensive than the other flushes.

Second flush : It has a dark, amber color and strong flavor, especially in contrast to first flush teas. The tea leaves have a purplish bloom and can have a fruity taste. Many in the tea world liken the flavor of a second flush to a muscatel grape. The distinct flavor is caused by a combination of unique weather, topography, and plant types. Some tea connoisseurs prefer the second flush because of this unique flavor.

Third flush : When brewed, this flush results in a dark or coppery colored tea. Autumn Darjeeling leaves are larger than those from other seasons. This type tends to be priced slightly lower than the first and second flush teas.

    Margaret's Hope - Second Flush Darjeeling

    Published by Kendall on Oct 13th 2020

    I spent several summers in Belfast, Northern Ireland as a child. My grandma introduced me to tea at a very young age. It has been a pleasant addiction ever since. I've never been able to make tea that tasted just like hers. I always chalked it up to the water in the US. Now I realize that I've been buying the wrong tea! Margaret's Hope brought me right back to my childhood. This tea is brilliant - beautiful to look at, fragrant and earthy. I can't get enough of it and will be buying this one over and over again.
