From Mittal Teas

A Light Tea, made up of the early pickings of select summer leaf. Compared to FIRST FLUSH the brew is slightly darker, with a fuller aroma. An important feature is that when carefully preserved the keeping properties are higher then that of other Darjeeling teas, therefore it finds greater acceptance during the later part of the year. Tea connoisseurs of sevrral countries prefer SECOND FLUSH over any other tea

This is the last of my India trip tea stash, so I was looking forward to trying this one. The tea was in fact darker than the usual Darjeeling. Instead of a gold-brown liquid, it was a clear red-brown liquid with a fragrance that was only slightly floral but refreshing. On my first sip I really noticed the grape-y taste. I suppose that must be the “muscatel flavor” that I keep on reading about. As I was finishing the cup, I could feel a bit more astringency from the tea, and it also a developed a slight bitterness towards the end of the cup.

Overall, while I found it very refreshing, the tea didn’t really have anything that made it really stand out for me. Given how refreshing it is though, I do think that it would be a great summer tea for the afternoon or evening, and for some reason, I seem to think it would go well with carrot cake…
