From Imperial Teas of Lincoln

This charming garden takes its name from the scenic beauty of the area. Our search for the best Assam each year has led us to a number of garden’s in this fine group, which is monitored by the Ethical Tea Partnership. This fine tea is a First Flush picking, most of Assam’s best teas are from the second flush, but this was painstakingly made made to produce abundant tips which guarantee a really smooth infusion with a sophisticated character. The malty quality is very apparent with a lingering fruit like quality. Greenwood premium teas represent the top segments among both the orthodox and CTC teas, and are known for their ‘depth’, both in colour as well as in flavour. Where this tea really distinguishes itself is in the fine, almost ‘Muscatel’ fragrance and aftertaste generally found only in Darjeeling teas and also in its very smooth, lightness of character.

I made a mug of this with a heaped teaspoon brewed for three minutes – boiling water.

It was a medium intensity red-brown colour in the mug. I didn’t get a lot of aroma – a hint of rust.

I struggled a bit to describe the flavour, though I found it very pleasant. There was some of the proper, generic, tea flavour; there was butter, giving a pleasant smoothness to it; there was also a fruity, ‘bright’ element in there that I found difficult to place – the dealer’s description mentions an “almost ‘Muscatel’ fragrance and aftertaste” so perhaps it was a hint of that I was detecting – it could well have been a hint of grape juice.

I found this a very enjoyable tea.
