Tasting Notes

From our Chief Tea Taster
Submit
Aroma
Lifted tones of Muscat grapes, peach with soft nutty undercurrents.
Appearance
Dark Amber
Taste
An exclusive Summer Darjeeling offering a perfect balance of complexity and approachability. From the first sip, you'll be greeted by a full-bodied yet mellow cup that offers a delightful array of fruity notes.

The presence of Muscat grapes is prominent, infusing the liquor with a luscious and inviting flavor that persists throughout the entire tasting journey.

As you explore further, the tea reveals its complexity with the harmonious combination of juicy peach flavors and velvety nutty undertones reminiscent of chestnuts. Towards the end, subtle woody undertones make their presence known, gently supporting the overall flavor profile.

However, these woody notes gracefully fade away, giving way to sweeter hints of red berries, creating a memorable and distinctive Muscatel experience that is truly worth savoring, especially coming from such a celebrated plantation.
