Turzum 'Muscatel Dream', Second Flush Garden Darjeeling
This top ‘Muscatel’ tea, so called for its resemblance to the fragrance of the wine, is created by the skilled manufacture of the select leaves, bitten by little insects. This causes the leaf to release an enzyme in order to repair itself, which imparts a delicious and distinctive flavour to the tea. It has a honey fragrance and warm spicy flavours that linger in the mouth and change with each sip. It is as close in complexity as Darjeeling has come to the famous Oriental Beauty teas of Taiwan. It is the best Darjeeling I have ever tasted. It is one of the most beautiful tea gardens in Darjeeling, facing the wide open Mirik valley on south and south western aspects with a mesmerizing view. The climate is cool and misty where ambient temperature ranges from 3c in harsh winter to 28c in summer. The annual rainfall ranges between 2500mm to 3000mm, with heavy monsoon during July to September. Turzum, a section of the Sungma garden is an organic environment. It has a most beautiful Shiv Gouri Temple, there are excellent Cymbidium orchids, high altitude floras and various hill grown vegetables being cultivated abundantly. It has a reserve forest of more than 3000 fully mature pines. The garden was established during 1863 by a British planter.
