From Teabox

Try out this exotic Darjeeling Muscatel that is round, smooth yet grand cup of tea. An exotic, tasteful and aromatic muscatel Second Flush tea from Seeyok, this comes with high praise from our experts who was blown away by it. Its shimmery black appearance is visual delight to the eye that seems to add to the overall oomph of the tea. And if that’s not enough, this strong bodied black tea leaves a distinct aftertaste, having a nice muscatel taste with hints of black grapes and honey. Whether you want to savour the exotic flavours of this tea alone, or with a larger audience, it is pretty fantastic.

My first Teabox order is heeeeeeere! I’m excited to get into the world of Darjeeling black teas because even though I’ve loved what I’ve tried previously, it’s been limited to 3 bagged Darjeeling teas. I think the complexity of this tea is a little too much for me to describe with my inexperienced palate, but I can say three things: 1) it has a bolder and stronger flavor than any Darjeeling black tea I’ve ever had, and 2) there’s not one hint of bitterness, and 3) it’s damn good. In fact, I’m on the second steep right now, and it’s outstanding…the flavor was a little too much on that first steep. They say to steep for 4-5 minutes, but I think I may limit it to 2-3 next time. Anyway, I bought a lot of this one, and quite a few samples of other Darjeelings, so I’m excited to try some new teas!! Thank you so much to Anlina (sorry, I don’t know how to tag yet, haha) for referring me to Teabox!

Glad you’re enjoying your order :) I usually find I enjoy Darjeelings steeped a little shorter and on the cooler end of their recommended temperature range.

Mike

Awesome, thanks! That explains why that second steep was so good! I’m so excited about all the new teas I have to try! I was able to get a couple from Butiki before they closed too! Did you get your $25 when I joined? I wasn’t sure how that part worked.

Anlina

I did, thank you!

I was really tempted by the Butiki sale, but I managed to resist. A wonderful as everything sounded, I just need to get my cupboard down a bit before I place any more big orders. Also the dollar is terrible, which helped my resolve.

Mike

Great! Haha, yeah…I need to try to clear my cupboard now, I keep buying more and more and more. :P

Mike

I couldn’t resist with the Butiki sale, given all the good comments on here…I had to try some out before it was too late!
