It is also called Easter Flush. First flush is considered to be of the highest quality. 2. SUMMER / SECOND FLUSH The Second Flush takes place in June and so is also called the Summer Flush. The leaves grow much faster and are allowed to mature more than the first flush. This results in a stronger yet smoother flavour. The brewed tea has a dark colour with an amber hue. 3. AUTUMN FLUSH The third main flush of the year takes place during October and sometimes into November and hence is called the Autumn Flush. The leaves grow large and pruning is required during the growth period to produce a good quality autumn flush.
