From Happy Earth Tea

DRY LEAF: Well rolled and sorted dark grey and brown, rich with smells of apricots, ripe peaches, grapes, pepper and some floral notes present.

INFUSION: Dark brown and some green with a nose of fruits and macadamia nuts.

CUP: Bright orange-gold, with a fruity aromas. You can taste the muscat grapeyness with an underlying sweetness and a “nutiness” besides a touch of floral notes. It makes for a smooth cup with a rich complexity.

Turzum is part of Sungma tea estate.

This is a really nice Darjeeling. It’s quite fruity—grape and dried apricot, mainly—and not very floral. I’m not picking up on the nuttiness mentioned in the description, and I wouldn’t say it’s sweet either. It’s just as astringent as a good Darjeeling should be, and it’s not too heavy on the grassy, herbal kinds of notes that I often find overwhelming. I tried the 2012 Sungma First Flush from Happy Earth and didn’t much care for it, but I tend to prefer second flush Darjeelings so it’s no surprise that this one’s more to my liking. Thanks for the sample, Nicole_Martin!

If you like rich muscatel stone fruits flavor I highly recommend Sungma Autumnal by H&S.

Thanks! Adding this to the list for the H&S order I’m planning for when I can buy more tea.
