2nd Flush 2023 Darjeeling Tea by Tea Emporium
The 2nd Flush Darjeeling Tea is a type of tea that is harvested during the second flush season in the Darjeeling region of India. It is characterized by its fuller body, stronger taste, and more complex flavor profile, with notes of fruit, flowers, and spice. The leaves used to produce second flush Darjeeling tea are generally more mature, resulting in a darker liquor and a richer taste.

During this period of time the muscatel character in Darjeeling tea becomes more prominent in it’s teas due to various factors.

Muscatel Darjeeling tea is a type of second flush Darjeeling tea that is particularly prized for its unique flavor profile, which is often described as having a musky or grape-like quality. This distinctive flavor is believed to be the result of a combination of factors, including the varietal of tea plant, the climate and soil conditions in the Darjeeling region, and the processing techniques used.

To make muscatel Darjeeling tea, the leaves are typically harvested by hand and then withered to remove some of the moisture content. They are then rolled to break down the cell walls and release the flavor compounds. After rolling, the leaves are left to oxidize, a process that allows the enzymes in the leaves to interact with the air and produce a range of flavor and aroma compounds. Finally, the leaves are dried and sorted to remove any stems or other debris before being packaged for sale.

The specific techniques used to produce muscatel Darjeeling tea can vary depending on the individual tea estate and the preferences of the tea maker. However, all high-quality muscatel Darjeeling teas share a similar flavor profile that is prized by tea lovers around the world.
