Located high in the Himalayas, the Glenburn Estate is owned by one of India’s pioneering tea planting families, the Prakashes, and is a unique geographical location that offers a selection of teas that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world. The second flush tea is made just after the late spring showers when the succulent leaves result in a very attractive tea with a purplish bloom and sprinkling of silver tips. Plucked in the early summer months of May and June, this stylishly rolled leaf is made from select shoots that draw their succulence from the late spring showers. The cup is clear amber, yet full bodied with an excellent flowery nose. In taste it has a complex layer of maltiness with musk and nutty undertones. This liquor has a special character owing to the clonal plants selected to thrive in our unique Glenburn growing conditions.
