    KNOW YOUR TEA

    This cup comes from the misty hills of Darjeeling. The only place in the world that can produce Muscatels. This blend, crafted by our master tea tasters by hand-selecting the finest Muscatels from iconic plantations of Darjeeling, is lively & medium-bodied. The sip feels strong with distinctive notes of Muscat grapes and nectarines that stay throughout the length of the cup. Luscious notes of stone-fruits with mild woody accents render a rounded feel on the palate. The aftertaste is of tart fruits.
