From Darjeeling Tea Boutique

Description: This Makaibari second flush black tea of 2014 has an infusion of coppery leaves with plenty of clonal tips which exudes the floral fragrance along with musky notes.

Smell: The subtle presence of muskiness coupled with flowery aromas, the characteristic of clonal teas from Darjeeling makes this summer tea a must have for those seeking more than the muscatel notes from their cups.

Liquor: A coppery liquor got from a 3 minutes steeping around 95 degrees centigrade, a typical steeping parameter belonging to teas from the queen of hills.

So having tasted this, I think I now know what the fabled muscatel flavour is. It turns out it was the indescribable, most prominent note that I tasted in the 2013 Giddhapahar autumnal that I bought last year.

The smell of the dry leaf, though similar to the 2013 autumnal, is at the same time unique, carrying a hint of sweetness that I don’t quite pick up in the autumnal.

Astringency is very gentle, barely noticeable as a puckering on my tongue. Though as the cup empties, it slowly accumulates to become more evident.

Tastewise, I don’t think I’m that yet qualified to differentiate between the two. They’re both flowery and musk-like. I’ll leave it at that for now, at least until I can better tell the difference.

Flavors: Flowers, Muscatel
