From Teabox

One of this year’s laudable cups, this organic Temi offers a full-bodied experience that is bright and lively. With a pleasant briskness it starts with delicate floral tones that leads one to a bold essence of luscious notes like those of apricots and grapes. The liquor gains a special texture with this and is inlined with soft musky undertone. Hints of vanilla and aromatic wood come round to the finish making the cup quite mellow. Sweet flavors of pink pralines make the aftertaste quite exceptional.

Oh
mah
GAWD, this is lovely! It’s an oversimplification to call this a “cousin” to Darjeeling, as this Temi Summer Muscatel is its own tea. Light body with surprising depth, similar to a second flush Darjeeling, with some light musk, a bright, bright muscatel, and some faint minerality that makes me think of fresh, fresh air and water running over rocks. Brisk. Serious muscatel hit. Just gorgeous.

This is the third tea I’ve tried from TeaBox, and I am uniformly impressed.
