Swooning

Yes. I said swooning. My (almost) everyday tea is Darjeeling, for the past 20 years. This Sikkim second flush muscatel is. a. maze. ing. Its floral, citrus, muscat notes are sublime, and its fresh fragrance is heady. This tea is pure ambrosia. I fully recognize the melodramatic use of the word swooning, but I stand by it!

A Very Delicious Second Flush Black Tea

The Sikkim 2nd Flush Muscatel tea tastes full-bodied and fruity, just as I like it for a second flush tea from the Himalayas. Its strong and sweet-fruity aroma and delicious fragrance is very good. This shows the careful selection of good teas. Thank you very much, dear Henrietta!

Love this tea

Probably the tastiest cup of tea I have ever had, a real surprise! In a glass teapot the color is astonishing and the resulting brew will bring a smile to your face. A second (and third) infusion lose nothing in taste and aroma.
