From Nathmull's

A well made blackish tea with some green leaves and a fair amount of silver tips present . Having a bright pale golden liquor this tea has an extraordinary fruity flavour and aroma with a pleasant aftertaste.

A Garden situated west of Darjeeling at altitudes ranging from 2500 ft. to 4800 ft. above msl. This tea estate has mostly China bushes which produce exquisite flavoury teas during the First Flush and typical China Muscatal during the Second Flush. The garden comprises of two divisions namely Risheehat and Liza Hill. This estate has recently been certified Organic from December 2009.

Quite a bit more tannin than other Darjeelings I’ve tried. The liquour is orange and floral aroma. Nice, but not amazing.

Aroma is floral with strong hints of cocoa, brew is pale ruby, taste is quite astringent, very wine-like with a highly tannic bitterness to it with subtler hints of pine at the not-so-smooth finish, definitely a breakfast tea.
