This second flush whole leaf premium, muscatel, oolong from Mirik, Darjeeling is exceptional. It has a rich mouthfeel with notes of honey, oak bark, hay, dried mango, grape, peach, wildflowers and hay.

Golden Summer Muscatel is a second flush, artisanal oolong and is an excellent choice for someone who desires a high quality muscatel. It is extremely well crafted and has a marvelous, rich mouthfeel. The honey and fruit flavors of dried mango, grape and peach are more prominent, with an undertone of aged oak and hay.

To completely develop the flavors and ensure that the tea has a rich mouthfeel, this whole leaf tea is expertly crafted. In June, before the monsoons hit Mirik and the tea flavors get diluted with too much rain water, the finest two leaves or single leaf and a bud are hand plucked from the tea bushes. Then the leaves undergo outdoor withering, oxidation, fixation, hand rolling and drying. We recommend our Golden Summer Muscatel as a must try if you are a tea enthusiast or aficionado.

Morning cuppa! Perhaps it’s the influence of another tea friend who made this comparison on IG, but as I sip this second flush darjeeling most of what I’m tasting is the dark molasses like sweetness of jaggery. Though it also has milder notes of muscatel grapes, honey, and freshly baked bread as well and the faintest bit of dates. It’s very smooth, and is making for a gentle start to the weekend without sacrificing on flavour!
