Grown in the foothills of the Himalayan range at the famous Risheehat estate, this second flush darjeeling offers a rich flavour profile and nutty, grapey aroma of a fine darjeeling. The liquor is a beautiful amber colour and the top flavour note is earthy, with a hint of “nuttiness” and then finishes with the grapey “muscatel” and honey notes. This teas does best with a 3-5 minute steeping. It’s strong enough to take milk and/or sugar, but some of the grapey/honey finish notes do fade.
Nestling in the foothills of the Himalayan range, Darjeeling grows this exclusive tea at altitudes ranging from 600 to 2,000 meters. Unlike other tea regions, which are lower in altitude and closer to the equator, Darjeeling has a very limited harvest period. The cool and moist climate, the soil, the rainfall and the sloping terrain all combine to give Darjeeling its unique “Muscatel” flavor and exquisite bouquet. Over the years this fine, delicately flavored tea has acquired the reputation as being the “Champagne of Teas.”
