From DarjeelingTeaXpress

Over the years, this special family owned garden has increasingly produced good teas and this year is no different. This 51st lot is no different. The muscatel flavour that Darjeeling second flush teas are known for is quite pronounced in this lot. There is delicate astringency in the tea and long floral notes that makes it long in the mouth. A tea worth tempting.This tea deserves it’s name, “Black Muscatel,” as it has plenty of the choice attribute, plus the strength of character to go straight to the play-offs.

This is the sample that DarjeelingTeaXpress had included in my order.

The leaves are a deep greenish to brown color with fresh minty scents.

Steeping gives the liquor a deep copper tone, with less fresh but equally minty and lightly floral scents.

The flavor is very rich and floral, dark and deep, with a slight hint of a fresh after-taste.

A good early to late afternoon tea, as strong and slightly fresh as it is.

A great tea for the price. Has all the good 2nd flush characteristics. Recommend this strongly.
