From Imperial Teas of Lincoln

Jungpana is a tiny, beautiful and renowned garden in the Mahanadi district close to the river. The garden is on a steep slope next to the fine Goomtee garden. It is incredibly remote and only accessible by foot which also plays a part in its scant supply. This rich liquoring infusion yields the classic ‘muscatel’ character with hints of almond or walnut depending on infusion time. The aroma has hints of peach and floral notes. All this and with a delightful honey finish. It is considered a ‘sky’ or celestial tea for good reason.

At its best, this was a reasonable tea. It’s another of these teas with touches of chocolate and fresh, sweet, hay; but also with the tiniest hint of dry cider. What I didn’t get very strongly was the basic, generic tea taste.

I say ‘at its best’ as it was quite difficult to get right. First of all, it seems a very weak tea – I used more and more until I ended up using two heaped teaspoons to the mug. And it was difficult getting the timing right. I settled on three minutes brewing – trying to get more flavour by brewing for four minutes turned the dry cider element into the roughest scrumpy – the kind that makes your leg twitch when you’re drinking it – not what I appreciate in a cup of tea. Less tea or less brewing and it was bland.

It’s nice enough at its best but not a favourite.
