This is a rare and finest Summer Tea or Second Flush oolong tea prepared from high-quality 144 clones at Rohini Tea Estate. The month of May is very interesting for low to mid-elevations in Darjeeling. Growth is very slow and the weather is quite dry, not too much rain. Good temperature and low humidity. It is a period of slow growth and also coincides with greenfly attack. It leads to stunted growth. You can say this the perfect condition for making Oolongs. Oolongs are very light delicate teas with complex flavours. They have a very high aroma and superb tastes. The teas are sweet and have a rosy honey-like flavour. You can brew them multiple times. The window period for making them is very short.
The garden workers are very careful in there plucking by hand to make sure only the best shoots with prominent buds are plucked. The plucking is of such fine quality that the tea only needs to be hand sorted and the machines used to make the tea are very less. It is a true delight and one of our best Darjeeling Second Flush Oolong Tea.
