From Glenburn Tea - Direct

Made in early November from our select clonal fields, the autumn cup has a gentle copper glow, mirroring the evening sun on the snows of Mount Kanchenjunga in the shadows of which it is made. It is full bodied and mellow, has a delicate flowery bouquet and undertones of malt, with a long finish. The tea bushes give us one grand finale at the end of the harvesting year and the taste lingers like a beautiful symphony that carries you into the next season.

Brewing Instructions: 2.5g in 200ml (7 fl-oz) of water at 100°C (212°F) for 3-4 minutes.
OR:
1 tea spoon per English tea cup, and 2 tea spoons for the American coffee mug

One of the smoothest and most subtle black teas I have ever tasted. Whenever I have company over, this one is always the favorite with guests. Third flushes aren’t for everyone due to their subtle undertones and more chocolatey flavors, but if you want to sample what a third flush should taste like when done right, look no further than Autumn Crescendo.
In my experience this tea will take to a second steeping, but not as well as other teas. While a second steeping is still delicious and complex, it loses much of the undertones that make this tea so amazing.

To be honest, I did not have this tea from the Estate direct. But I know where I tasted it, they got it from this direct source. So I have high confidence that my experience with it was what you’d get from this listing for the tea.

This was just a wonderful Darjeeling. I can’t remember if I’ve had a Glenburn autumn flush before but what a fantastic introduction. A medium body with stone fruit and a light hit of malt. Once I get over my tea spree guilt I’ll need to get some of this. Along with the instructions for how my host steeped it. :)

A richer bolder Darjeeling than a second flush. It smells malty with a hint of chocolate and follows through with those flavours in taste while still retaining the feel of a Darjeeling. No bitterness at all.
