From Thunderbolt Tea

Risheehat Golden Musk is one fine tea which we bought from Risheehat Tea Estate. The golden musk name is tagged because most of the tips or buds are golden tips. Being a clonal variety it has been processed very intricately keeping intact its overall appearance and beauty. It has lovely notes of fruits and nuts with muscatel notes as a prominence. Lovely tea to be in the company of.

The thing I really like about Darjeeling teas is that they’re wonderfully nuanced.

This one cold-steeped was no exception. There was sweet floral that touched first, followed by nuttiness with smooth malt notes and then finishing with some earthy muskiness.

I still prefer my Giddapahar estate teas, they’re a little smoother with slightly less atringency. The earth flavors here though, really shine.

It’s like if I’m having a bad day, bad week or think I’m sick of tea for a while, I can grab one of these and it just coaxes me out of my slumps.

Summers are always good for these slumps because Fiance has several week long business trips in quick succession and I get weirdly lonely. I think the birds do too (or they feel it off me) because they don’t sing as much either. Perk up little peepers.

I never used to be very affected when my boyfriend/fiance went on business trips. But once we were married, something changed and I cried when he left. LOL!

It didn’t bother me much at all last year (except for the flu bug and fever I got) or the year before, but this year I’m just crazy weepy and lonely!

Awww! Well, you’re not alone. Steepster is here for you! Drink more tea and cheer up! :)

@CHAroma if you have a shirt of his that he’s worn and still smells like him it might settle you a bit to snuggle with it or even sleep with it…

CHAroma

That’s a good idea! I’ll have to do that the next time he travels, which luckily isn’t too often.

Thank you so much Moraiwe for this tea! Also, the other teas that came in this here package, which are many in number… I was a tad bit overwhelmed when I opened the package. I’m super duper excited to try all of them. Anywho, I read her tasting note and it seems that we have almost exactly the same impressions of this tea.

Like she says, it’s very nuanced, with floral notes and then a good bit of muskiness. I found it to be quite earthy, which is good because I like super earthy tasting Darjeelings. For me, it was more astringent than it seemed to be for Moraiwe, probably because I’m lazy and it’s about 10 degrees outside so I didn’t cold steep it like she did. I want to do that with the rest of the packet though.

Also as Moraiwe says, it has a great second steep, obviously slightly muted but really not that different, albeit a bit earthier. It’s also gorgeous dry, always a plus.

In other news: my school’s doing RENT this weekend, and I’m SO EXCITED to go see it. I know that it will be fabulous, and I’m actually going on thursday and then ushering on Friday so that I can see it twice!
