Seeyok Special Summer Muscatel Black Tea

description

This muscatel packs a range of flavors. It's sweet, has just the right amount of tart and woody notes, and that extra note of fennel just brightens up the cup. Perfect for a cool, breezy morning.

aroma

Marked by notes of peaches, grape seed, and wood.

appearance

Light amber

taste

The liquor starts out on a dry, brisk, slightly bitter note, but turns flavorful in the middle. Tart notes of plum and grape seed become prominent here. Undertones of licorice and fennel are discernible, more noticeably so in the aftertaste. The liquor, although sharp at times, is largely smooth, full-bodied and ample in the mouth.

Nice for me in the afternoon

Likes : Smooth Body.

Best Served : Afternoon.

Steeped as to direction. Used a small teapot. Golden orange brew with faint marigold petal aroma. Muscatel flavor with slight honey, peach and lemon notes, and a slight sweetness and faint bitter note, barely perceptible. It is definitely a good yummy tea not to forward and something I like in a early afternoon tea.

Wonderful darjeeling

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body.

Best Served : Evening.

I received this tea as a free sample. The dry tea has a woody-flowery scent. When steeped, it starts giving off sweet aromas of raisins, ripe stone fruit, underscored by floral notes. As the steeping proceeds completion, one gets a clear hit of vegetal note - cooked greens - underneath the fruity-flowery aromas. The liquor is a deep peachy amber. On the palate, its surprisingly smooth with no astringency. The notes of stone fruit is very evident on the palate, ending with the vegetal notes. However, the 'muscatel' notes are hardly evident, especially when compared to the muscatel from Sungma. Overall, an excellent tea. Only not 'muscatel' enough..

A Fruity Darjeeling

Likes : Great Aroma.

Best Served : Afternoon, Evening, Dessert Tea.

This tea smells wonderful. Definitely has a fruity flavor. Better without milk. I typically drink assams so probably not my favorite tea but very nice for what it is.

Great Smelling and Tasting Tea!

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Anytime, Afternoon, Evening, Dessert Tea.

The aroma of this tea is captivating. I could not help but fall in love with just having this tea sitting nearby. It has a very distinct and pleasant perfume fragrance that is just as enjoyable as the tea's enthralling taste. It is a classic muscatel Darjeeling in that it is full of fruity, grapey notes. A sugary/honey flavor lingers well after the first and last sip, that make this tea an enjoyable experience from smell to finish.

Fragrant muscatel

Likes : Great Aroma, High Quality.

Best Served : Afternoon, Evening, Dessert Tea.

Very enjoyable! It had a lovely fragrance and a smooth full muscatel flavour with a slight hint of honey. Grapes and honey. The aftertaste was long, sweet and slightly tannic at the end.

I'd give this 4.5 stars

Compared back-to-back with the 2014 Castleton Musc. This tea is definitely one of the better ones from the '14 second flush. As has been the case with all of last years Darjeelings, the nose is a bit subdued, and the muscat scent doesn't really jump out of the cup, but it is very balanced with well integrated fruit and forrest flavours on the palate, smooth body, and a fairly long and slightly drying finish (which I really like in my Darjeelings).

A rare blend at once elegant and exotique. The aromatics are tantalizing and the cup fulfills the promise with a taste and mouth feel fully round and honeyed, true kin to the Muscat grape. ‘Tis a truly distinct pleasure yielding to its temptation!!!
