From Murchie's Tea & Coffee

Grown in the northeast corner of India, among the foot hills of the Himalayan mountains, Darjeeling is a highly sought, coveted black tea.

Graded as FTGFOP1: second flush season.

It is the combination of high mountains, steep terrains, well-drained soils, extreme cold and intense heat, as well as a good level of rainfall that contribute to the exquisite muscatel character and floral aroma of Darjeeling teas.

1.25 tsp for 250mL water 95C, steeped 4 minutes, drunk bare.

Dry leaf: brown flecked with some green and a few twigs. Aroma: winey wood.

Wet leaf: the green leaves brghten and open up fast — very pretty. Aroma: tannins, wet earth.

Liquor: medium brown, a bit darker than I expected.

Full and classic Darjeeing taste with a good body. I prefer a second flush, so I’m quite happy here. Lots of muscatel, and a slight bite back, almost like the pepper in some Yunnans.
