This tea is harvested in June, the second flush, during which Darjeelings are incomparable to any other tea in the world. Reminiscent of black currants or similar to the taste and fragrance of muscat grapes, this noticeably puckery tea shows light amber in the cup and possesses a wonderful, flowery bouquet. Milk will give it a grayish cast, but a touch of white sugar is very pleasant. Truly an excellent tea.
