Giddapahar Muscatel Darjeeling Second Flush Black Tea
For a Darjeeling muscatel, this tea is quite mellow. It has an impeccable balance of complex flavors – floral, fruity, and fresh which do not overwhelm one's senses. The flavors are restrained yet balanced which makes it one of the best muscatel teas of this year! The leaves are medium-sized, tightly-rolled, broken, and russet-colored; interspersed with tips and brown leaf flakes. The infusion features mellow notes of caramel and biscotti in the attack followed by notes of toasted almonds in the release. The amber-colored liquor is largely mellow and light-bodied. It starts with crisp notes of tart drupes, accompanied by slightly woody notes in the middle. The thick, caramelized flavors punctuated by notes of cooked apples come up in the release. Although not overpowering, black currants are quite evident in the aftertaste. Discover enchanting top notes of shelled nuts and oak wood with undertones of dried fruit and tobacco.
