This is a limited-edition Darjeeling second flush black tea produced from the finest leaves and buds in the picturesque solve of Rohini Tea Estate, Darjeeling. It’s a tippy tea made from more than 130 years old high-quality bushes planted by the British at 3500 FT. It is part of the mineral-rich Kurseong Valley known to produce some of the best muscatel teas in Darjeeling.
After long experimentation, we have made this tea in a red oolong style. It is highly oxidized before rolling. As a result, this tea got a woody, nutty, and fruity muscatel flavour which gives the tea a very clean cup and also allows us to keep it a whole leaf. It brews into a well-layered rich orange cup which gives abundant muscatel character and mouthful flavour with a woody taste. This tea has a grippy wine character that grabs you by the mouth. The tea has a prominent stone and mineral texture to it. You can feel a tactile sensation imparted that can be found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. The tea is extremely well balanced, complex, and has a layered structure of flavour and a prominent aftertaste. It provides relaxation to the body and mind. The aftertaste is long-lasting & captivating. This is one of the best muscatel teas in Darjeeling.
