description

One of the best muscatels from the Kurseong valley, this tea is complex, as it should be. Full bodied for a Darjeeling, with a bit of astringency in the end, it will please the connoisseur. And with this season seeing only a limited production of this tea, it's one to hoard.

Burnt wood, apricot and hints of cocoa nibs
