From DARJEELING TEA LOVERS

CASTLETON MUSCATEL BLACK TEA – 2nd FLUSH.

CASTLETON MUSCATEL is one of the finest muscatel teas that we have come across this season. This tea has been made from selective leaves that come from PURE CHINA BUSHES at an altitude of 6200 ft above sea level which is ideal for the MUSCAT FLAVOUR.

When this tea is steeped for 3 mins it gives a very SMOOTH MEDIUM GOLDEN LIQUOR which has a rich fruity aroma. With every sip, you get a very rich fruity flavour and it leaves a ‘twang’ of mint in the pallets. A perfect cup to make your mornings delightful.

DRY LEAVES: Fine sorted medium brown leaves with a hint of green in between.
LIQUOR: A smooth medium golden liquor with a very fruity aroma.
INFUSION: Pleasant coppery with hint of green and the aroma is full of mint texture.

STEEPING INSTRUCTIONS:
Add flat tea spoonful per cup to pot of freshly boiled water (at about 90 degree Celsius). Steep for 3 mins, strain to cup and sip luke warm.

PLEASE NOTE THIS TEA CAN BE STEEPED SEVERAL TIMES FROM THE SAME LEAVES.

Backlog:

Another tea consumed during the W-O-D. I really liked this Darjeeling, it had a very crisp, distinct flavor, a bit lighter on the muscatel than I would have thought given the name of the tea, that’s not really a complaint just an observation. I noticed the faintest notes of mint in the background that sort of took me by surprise. There is a fair amount of astringency to this one, it is both a cleansing astringency as well as slightly drying. I find that the astringency plays to the muscatel quite well, giving the tea a very wine-like finish.

Very pleasant, agreeably sweet, I found this to be one of the more energizing Darjeeling teas I’ve tasted. Most Darjeeling teas, for me at least, tend to be more relaxing and calming, and therefore I usually save them for afternoon enjoyment after I’ve had my stronger teas. But this tea had that kind of profile to it that I could easily enjoy in the morning and I don’t find that true with most Darjeeling teas.

A really nice Darjeeling.

The moment I removed my brew basket from my cup I could smell the distinct muscatel aroma in this Castleton Muscatel 2nd Flush from Darjeeling Tea Lovers. My mouth watered in eager anticipation for that first sip. Even though this is not the freshest Darjeeling, since I got it as a sample from one of my SororiTea Sisters, and have had it tucked away for awhile now, it is still delicious! The muscatel flavor is simply divine.

After looking at their website, I am seeing some of my favorite Darjeeling and some I have yet to try, all in one place, it is like a smorgasbord of Darjeeling, my eyes widened in excitement just browsing the site! Seriously I am having to hold myself back from placing an order until I sip down some of the teas I already have in my stash, plus saving for college for my daughter in the Fall is a bit more pressing right now.

As for this tea, well this tea, and me, will be spending some precious time alone with a good book, in the sunshine, while it lasts, both the sunshine and the tea.

Thanks Liberteas for this one!

This just might be one of the smoothest Darjeelings I have ever tried! It’s near velvety yet fairly muscatel and slightly dry…almost like a dry-wine…especially towards the end of the sip. Backtracking to the beginning of the sip I can pick up a few HINTS of fruit, too, even moreso as it cools – naturally – at room temp!

This is impressive!
