Seeyok 2nd Flush
Located at the end of the beautiful Mirik Valley in the western part of the Darjeeling tea region, Seeyok did a good job making second flush Darjeeling during a difficult season. It is a fully oxidized tea, thus, a dark liquor.
In comparison to the Singell Second Flush, it is more brisk, with wonderful fruity muscatel flavors that Darjeeling producers try for. As a Fair Trade tea, a portion of the proceeds helps workers with credit, health and home improvement programs.
