Darjeeling Jungapana Muscatel Wonder Tea
Grown as an organic classic ‘china bush’, -planted from seed not cuttings or clones, in an area found during a patrol searching for water (pani) for the king (jung) whilst warring with the English and Sikkimese . A stream was found and the tea garden later founded.
A very nice Autumn flush tea from one of the best classic tea gardens of Darjeeling (china bush etc) harvested in the first week of November 2012.
Dry, the tea has a classic dark bigger leaf with a fair amount of silvery and light golden tips, and a pleasant thick aroma of forest honey, Dutch cocoa and ripe blackberries.
After steeping for 5 minutes we get a dark golden orange sparkling cup with a well balanced medium to heavy taste of the classic Darjeeling teas and hints of mature forest fruits, honey, chocolate..
Whilst not a classic expressive muscatel tea, it is a wonderful harmonious tea with a fine aftertaste including hints of muscatel.
