Enjoyed this tea with the traditional muscatel notes of Darjeeling. High quality with a good brew.
For those who enjoy the brisk and slightly astringent nature of Darjeeling first flush, this tea from Tindharia Tea Estate should be appropriate.
DRY TEA: The leaves are neat, moderately tippy and have a nice bloom. The leaf-color is dark grey with plenty of green.
INFUSION: The leaves turn bright green and brown. The nose is sweet vegetal underlaid with roasted nuts, a complex effect as if recalling the hardiness and the gentleness of the Himalayas, home to the world’s best tea!
CUP: The liqor is golden with a nice body. It is brisk tea with a floral character and an astringent tone.
BREWING INSTRUCTIONS: 2-3 minutes. However, if you reduce the tea quantity you can let it brew for up to 5 minutes for a good result.
OCCASION: A late afternoon pick-me-up.
