From Happy Earth Tea

DRY LEAF: Long wiry whole leaves fragrant with fruity notes and pepper. A smell almost like a rich red wine!

INFUSION: The wet leaves are deep brown with streaks of olive green. It has a nose of fruity, floral notes, a hint of camphor and citrus notes.

CUP: A bright red-orange cup with a honeyed sweetness of ripe peach and muscatel. It has a smooth, creamy texture with a complex flavor and a very satisfying mouth feel.

Located in the picturesque Rungbong valley, Turzum is part of Sungma tea estate which is among Darjeeling gardens with highest elevation ranging from 4658 ft – 7742 ft. The garden was set up in 1863 using excellent stock of chinary seed. The garden that is spread over 694 acres continues to produce some of the best Darjeelings.

1 tps for a 8oz cup.

Water Temp: 200F-212F

Steeping time: 3-5 mins

I like this one quite a bit. It’s very fruity. I’m mostly getting dried apricot, which really comes out in the aftertaste. There’s just a hint of something floral lurking in the background, and exactly enough astringency to keep things interesting. It’s complex, full bodied, and an all-around enjoyable tea.

To be honest, I have a hard time picking out the differences among Darjeelings—I can tell a first flush from a second, but beyond that I’m lost. I don’t get the whole muscatel thing either; neither this nor any other Darjeeling I’ve tried strikes me as particularly wine-like (although I admit I’m not much of a wine drinker) and I only occasionally get grape notes. I do tend to like second flushes quite a bit, though, and this one’s no exception. Thanks to Nicole_Martin for the sample!

i like 2nd flash or autumn more than 1st. less finicky with temps and time, more flavor. i love strong stone fruit flavor.

Same here. I really enjoy cold-steeped first flush, but otherwise I find they tend to be too grassy and herbal for my liking.
