- Harvest: Summer 2020
- Oxidation: 100%
- Farming: Certified Organic
This is the second-flush harvest of Indian black tea handpicked in the Summer of 2020 from the Mim Estate, a tea garden established in 1862.
The Mim Estate is located in Jorebunglow, Sukhiapokhari in Darjeeling district at an elevation ranging from 2,800 ft. to 4,500 ft. The garden is certified by HACCP and ISO standards.
Darjeeling 2nd Flush is fully oxidized like a typical black tea, yet carries the rich floral quality only a Darjeeling can offer. 2nd flush simply means second picking of leaves. These leaves are of the highest quality, only trumped by the first flush. In a season there are a total of 44 flushes, with the 3rd through 44th being used for low quality teabags. Meant to be enjoyed all on its own but has enough body to handle milk or sugar. Pairs with nuts and dried fruits, heavier cheeses, raspberry chocolate cake.
