This came as part of my tea of the month club order from Adagio this January. Darjeelings aren’t my favourite but I like them alright. Still waiting for this one to cool down for a taste that doesn’t burn my tongue. I did add milk and sugar, as I do with most black teas.

This tastes pretty good, with a smooth feel and a sweetness above the sugar I added. I’m still not sure what ‘muscatel’ means exactly in terms of tea, but this tastes like the other darjeelings I’ve tried, with hardly any astringency or bitterness.

Boiling 8 min or more

Single, vegetarian, asexual, 5 cats. Airplane Engineer. I drink most of my tea with a bit of sugar and all the ones with a black tea base with a little bit of milk too. I’m super sensitive to bitterness and spiciness so I tend to avoid those.

I am also a flavoured matcha latte fanatic.
