    Tasting Notes
    Appearance - Dark-coppery with a pronounced bloom, stylish and well-made leaves with delicate tips
    Aroma - Decidedly sweet with clear woody and toasty layers, not too different from ripened prunes and hints of peaches
    Taste - Smooth and supple cup with a pleasing sweetness all round the palate, with exquisite notes of hazelnuts and hyacinths around the edges and ephemeral aroma of muscat grapes that lingers long after

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Know your Tea Better

    What is Second Flush?
    Second Flush is the second harvest of the year. In Darjeeling, the Second Flush teas are harvested at the onset of Summer. Plucked during the peak in months of May and June, Second Flush teas are renowned for their full-bodied and crimson-golden cups, with a mellow sweetness and distinct fruity flavours.
    What makes Second Flush teas highly-prized around the world?
    Second Flush teas from Darjeeling are highly sought after by connoisseurs for their signature fruity flavours and rich cups. It is also during the Second Flush that the elusive and exclusive MUSCATEL teas are produced at select tea estates for a short period of about two weeks.
    What is so special about Single Estate?
    Unlike most tea blends that contain teas from from multiple estates, Single Estate teas are sourced only from one particular estate, and generally from one particular section of the estate of either China or Clonal bushes. Also, most Single Estate teas are from a specific season - First, Second or Autumn Flush. VAHDAM® India's Single Estate teas also mention Invoice No. and Date of Plucking of the teas - identifying the exact lot that is available only with VAHDAM® India and no one else!
    Are these really from the famous Darjeeling tea-growing region?
    Yes! All 100% pure Darjeeling teas come with the Tea Board of India's DARJEELING TEA logo. This logo is allowed only for 100% genuine and authentic Darjeeling teas and is a guarantee that you are buying certified Darjeeling tea.
    How are the teas packaged?
    After sourcing our teas directly from plantations within hours of harvest, we bring them to our state-of-the-art tea facility in New Delhi, India. The teas then go through rigorous rounds of cleaning, sorting, quality testing to remove any impurities/dust/foreign particles. Post 10+ quality checkpoints for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors, etc., these are vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminum-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperature-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Further, required quantities are packed in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centers located in various parts of the world.

    Margaret Hope 2nd Flush

    Excellent tea, exactly what I expect from subtle ultra-fine Darjeeling tea with a Muscatel twist. Reminds me my days in Kolkata when I was growing and venture out for quality Darjeeling tea as our family was tea connoisseur. Thanks VAHDAM for this quality tea. I must add packaging is just superb. Hope we get this quality every time.
