Gopaldhara Darjeeling Smoky Muscatel – Clonal Black Tea
$6.49 / 100 grams tin caddy
This Darjeeling smoky muscatel tea is designed for those who are fans of smoky flavors in their tea. This tea is made from AV2 bushes, one of the most flavorful cultivars of Darjeeling. It is made with hand-picked leaves collected from elevations of 5500 to 7000 ft during the autumn flush season. After a bit of rolling, the tea leaves are passed through the pine smoke chamber several times to get that smoky flavor. Since pinewood is used to smoke the tea, it imparts a little pine resin aroma and muscatel flavor.
The burning pinewood shavings contribute to the sweet fruity, and smoky flavor with a honey finish. The dry leaves are brownish with abundant golden tips that give a bright reddish-orange liquor. Crafted by skillful, expert hands, it promises a truly strong and distinctive experience that will get you addicted.
This smoked black tea will make a cup of warm drink packed with energy, enthusiasm, and delicate charm. It has a refreshing aftertaste that lasts for a long time. This tea is best enjoyed without milk and sugar.
