2 Tasting Notes
When it’s just a cuppa I want, it’s this tea I go to. Beautifully astringent, warming, with a natural sweetness, and strength. I can (and do) drink this all day. This tea goes with just about everything. I find the it cleanses the palate rather well.
Great for an early morning cup, or a quick pick-me-up in the late afternoon. How long you brew it really depends on your tastes.
A great tea for blending! I have made the most wonderful chai with it.
This is a wonderful tea. I liked it best steeped for 2.5 minutes at 90-95 C. The mild floral sweetness of the bouquet only hints at the muscat grape flavour. With just a touch of unpasteurized honey, this became my go-to tea for morning and mid-afternoons.
Although labelled a ‘black tea’, like many first flush Darjeeling teas, it is far more akin to an oolong.
