A Nepalese Grand Cru from the Ilam valley, Nepal. This traditionally produced tea is harvested at over 2,000 metres above sea level. In comparison with first flushes, second flushes are characterised by more strongly oxidised leaves.

Sweet and velvety, this black tea reveals vegetal, fruity, honeyed and floral fragrances. An aromatic, fresh and balanced summer harvest.
