Taste
Experience an exclusive Summer Darjeeling that strikes the perfect balance between complexity and approachability.

From the first sip, this full-bodied yet mellow cup enchants with a delightful array of fruity notes. The prominent presence of Muscat grapes infuses the liquor with a luscious, inviting flavor that lingers throughout the tasting journey. As you delve deeper, the tea reveals its intricate character with a harmonious chord of juicy nectarines and velvety nutty undertones reminiscent of chestnuts.

Subtle woody notes emerge towards the end, gently supporting the overall flavor profile before gracefully fading into sweeter hints of red berries. This memorable and distinctive Muscatel experience, from such a celebrated plantation, is truly worth savoring.
