Darjeeling Sungma Muscatel Second Flush: from one of the most renown gardens.
Located in the Rungbong Valley at an altitude of up to 7000 feet, Darjeeling Sungma is from one of the most highly acclaimed gardens having a history of producing first-rate teas. This second flush tea has a good neat, dark leaf with evident tip. Its character is well rounded, woody and fruity with a pronounced muscatel character. A must-drink tea! Infuse one teaspoon per person and one for the pot with freshly boiled water for three minutes. Sumptuous.
As reviewed: “It blends notes of the expected raisins (to me the big difference between first and second flush is definitely grapes vs raisins) with underlying notes of tobacco” read the review in Amanda Wilson’s tea blog.
