We saved the two Autumn Flush teas for last. “Flush” refers to the harvest. There is a growing season to tea plants (Camellia Sinensis). They start growing in the Spring and go dormant in Winter. The Spring harvest is the “First Flush” and is usually the least complex tasting tea. “Second Flush” is the Summer harvest and has fairly complex flavors. Some tea growers have a Monsoon harvest. The final harvest is the “Autumn Flush.” This and the other tea (#7) had true characteristics of this harvest. This tea was very grassy, both dry and when steeped. There was no trace of bitterness, but a hint of woodsy quality lingered in the mouth after swallowing.
