Avongrove 2nd Flush TGFOP | Black Tea
Description: In a year of few Darjeeling 2nd Flush teas, this is a very nice one. This black tea is medium to full-bodied, has a nice hint of muscatel, and a tiny bit of astringency to balance the roundness of the cup. This is a late season 2nd Flush, so perhaps a little more body than usual.
Avongrove is located in the Rangbhang district of Darjeeling between 4000-5700' elevation. Founded in 1998, they make wonderful classic Darjeeling teas, but they're also known for trying new things, including planting a portion of their fields with Assam tea bushes.
