HISTORY & ORIGINS

Darjeeling Second Flush Tea
Darjeeling tea is easily one of India’s most influential teas. But what makes it so special? It is the altitude, soil type, and climate that Darjeeling provides. Darjeeling teas are harvested in 4 different periods, yielding different results. Among the four different flavour profiles, it is pretty evident that Darjeeling’s second flush tea is considered the best. The origin of Darjeeling tea dates back to more than a century. This was when the East India Company was active. A civil surgeon named Campbell, who worked for the East India Company, was experimenting with the plantation of different teas. He first planted Camillia Sinensis in Darjeeling in the year 1847. By the year 1866, Darjeeling had 39 gardens and that quickly multiplied over the years. Tea plantations became a flourishing enterprise. Today, Darjeeling produces the world’s best aromatic teas. Ono Teas’ Darjeeling Second Flush Tea is the ‘Champagne of Teas’ sourced in small batches from some of the best gardens of Darjeeling. This tea has a distinctive, muscatel grapiness, unique only to Darjeeling’s second harvest in a year, makes it the most sought-after tea by connoisseurs worldwide.
