From English Tea Store

Mim Estate Black Tea is a second flush Darjeeling, grown at 6800 feet above sea level. The tea has a distinctive ?Muscatel? character, with a hint of currant and an almost wine-like taste. It comes from the Mim estate in northern India, where you can see the tip of mount Everest on a clear day.

The are 3 main times of year for producing good quality Darjeelings, and the second flush is harvested in June when these teas are more fully developed. The liquor is bright, and the taste is full and round like excellent muscatel. Mim Estate Tea is a superb afternoon tea that is especially good with scones and raspberry conserve.

For the best brew, Mim Estate Tea should steep in water that has been brought to a rolling boil for 2-5 minutes.

Here is a brief Snippit as I am still writing it now.

It is a smooth tea, perfect for morning or afternoon with some tea sandwiches. I am having cucumber sandwiches with mine today and it is lovely. I think however the reason it is so lovely with my sandwiches is because it is fairly bland and does not compete with my otherwise mellow food flavors.

thanks so much Azzrian, for that amazing package of tea! I will always be appreciative of all the generous Steepsters and the tea they’ve sent me! I think of all the kinds of black teas, Darjeeling is not my favorite, even though I love the name. I thought it was just the one darjeeling I’ve had that I didn’t like… because it was from Teavana. I don’t detest Darjeeling… I’d just rather have a STRONG tasting black tea in the morning — kick,pow, wakes you up. Darjeeling is so light! Even the steep color is light after four minutes. It’s tough to describe the flavor of a darjeeling… but you know it when you taste it, even if you’ve only had a couple. I thought it was interesting that this blend had actual tiny leaves in it… maybe that is the taste I’m not liking (like blackberry leaves in tea.) This is certainly a fine example of darjeeling though, if it’s your cup of tea!

I prefer 2nd flush darjeelings in the after noon.
