I have had the Phuguri Estate second flush from TeaG many times while living in Chicago.

It is an eye opener to get to try a second tea from the same garden, as a different flush, to get a real sense of how flushes are truly different.

This tea is much more green than I remember the second flush. It has a fair bit of vegetal bite at the finish in the mouth. But not in a bad way. I just recall the second flush being a lot less volatile and golden.

First flush is not always a short cut to “the best” in spite of what some traditions may insist upon.

I am rarely, if ever, active here. But I do return from time to time to talk about a very special tea I’ve come across.
