We discovered this elegant Canister during our travels to Darjeeling in September 2022. It's one of the many ways it is offered in India and for our Darjeeling fans, it's a perfect way to introduce Makaibari to one of your friends.  Or just treat yourself!  It is packed at Makaibari and comes garden-direct to you with the original instructions provided to customers in India.  The canister contains approximately 4 ounces of authentic Makaibari 2nd flush black tea.  2nd flush retains its character well even as the leaf matures.  From an estate certified Organic, Biodynamic and Fair Trade.  Enjoy our most popular Makaibari - the 2nd flush harvest. 

And for those seeking other options such as 1st flush or Green Makaibari, check out our other Makaibari lots.

Tea Education

2nd flush is sometimes called the Easter Flush. The leaf from these bushes has matured a bit since the early spring harvest but it is plucked well before the monsoons arrive which is typically mid-June. Too much moisture results in a greater yield but a lower quality of Darjeeling leaf so 2nd flush is pre-monsoon. 2nd flush leaves, when infused, exhibit a coppery hue to the leaf and the fragrance carries a deeper floral scent. It has more body in the cup with an increased pungency. The 2nd flush harvest has more staying power and is our most popular Makaibari tea.
