An exquisite tea with a bouquet that is complex and elevating in its effect. As always with teas from Arya Tea Estate, great deal of attention has gone into the making of this tea.
DRY TEA: This is a well-twisted, wiry and a very tippy tea. The leaf colors are largely dark grey, with a smattering of green and brown. The tips are long with fine pubescence, affording a great bloom and a stylish appearance.
INFUSION: The leaves turn pale green and brown. The nose is fragrant with earthly tones, and a strong hint of the muscatel that Darjeeling teas, especially during Second Flush, are well-known for.
CUP: The liqor is a golden hue bearing a rich bouquet that is at the same time delicate and smooth. It has hints of roasted almond overlaid with floral tones rounding off with a buttery touch.
BREWING INSTRUCTIONS: 3 minutes.
OCCASION: A nice morning cup, but really can be had anytime.
