    KNOW YOUR TEA

    The muscatel is a Darjeeling summer specialty produced in small volumes and with a legion of loyal followers who wait for it. The leaves chosen for making the muscatel are subjected to a short wither and long oxidation and this helps extract sweet, fragrant red wine-like notes that resemble the Muscat grape, from where it gets its name. This muscatel hails from the Seeyok estate.

    taste

    The liquor is medium-bodied, largely mellow, brisk and starts on a clean, fruity note similar to peaches, which subside to reveal a vibrant woody character towards the middle. A soft undercurrent of vanilla and caramel can be perceived around the edges; providing a perfect balance of tart and woody flavors. A muted musky note is evident in the aftertaste; adding to the symphony of flavors in this superlative Muscatel cup.
