Darjeeling Classic Summer Muscatel Black Tea

description

This is a house-special blend of the lighter muscatels of the year. In coming together, they produce a cup thats rich in classic Darjeeling second flush flavors, most notably wood and sour fruit, along with a pleasant amount of astringency. Its light yet brisk and therefore refreshing.

The liquor is light, clean, and slightly tart. Woody notes are dominant throughout the cup. However, the middle has some sour notes and hints of white flowers, although these fade quickly. The finish is woody with an aftertaste of plantain.
