Tasting Notes One of the finest muscatel teas from the splendid region of Darjeeling. Discover a cup that is exalted for a hint of sweetness, a balance of tart and woody notes, and an undertone of roasted black grapes that enlivens the bright liquor. This single-origin tea packs a soiree of fresh, floral, and fruity flavors. The tea leaves are medium-sized, tightly rolled, interspersed with a few tips and some greenish-brown flakes. The liquor is light amber-colored, largely mellow, sweet, and carries that invigorating aroma of burnt sugar. This artisanal infusion has faint notes of black raisins, burnt wood, and fresh biscotti. All of these notes come together perfectly to form a vivid symphony of flavors.
