Recently converted to organic production, Goomtee Estate's highest altitude Muscatel Valley division produces teas of great quality and distinction and this offering was one of this year's best. Well made even wiry black leaves with some silver tips produced from old seeded China hybrid tea plant. These leaves produce a strong and deeply flavourful tea liquor with notes of wood and spice and a long lingering finish.
Darjeeling is a tea from the region of Darjeeling in West Bengal, India. When First Flush Darjeeling is properly brewed, it yields a thin-bodied, light-coloured infusion with a floral aroma. The flavour can have a tinge of astringent tannic characteristics and a musky spiciness sometimes described as "muscatel"
Muscatel is an elusive taste found in some Darjeeling teas, usually second flushes. It is very hard to describe the taste in words, but it is easy to recognize the taste once you are familiar with it.
Unlike most Indian teas, Darjeeling tea is normally made from the smaller leaf Chinese variety of Camellia sinensis var. sinensis, rather than the large-leaved Assam plant (Camellia sinensis var. assamica). Darjeeling tea is usually made as black tea; however, Darjeeling oolong, green and white teas are starting to become more popular, though quite expensive.
