All About

Second Flush Darjeeling Muscatel Tea

ABOUT second flush darjeeling muscatel tea

The high elevation Alpine climate with unique terroir, lends Darjeeling teas a rare and unique flavour called ‘Muscatel’, much like Muscat grapes. This rare flavour is more pronounced during a short period of time, usually lasting two, or three weeks during the peak of summer. This is also considered prime second flush harvest.

A Motley Brew blend featuring the best of the higher elevation teas with pronounced Muscatel flavour. Much has been said and written about this unique flavour, which is best enjoyed rather than described as it evokes different thoughts in different people.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Very high in catechins and flavonoids, both known to fight free radicals and improve metabolism.

These teas are best brewed without any additives like milk or sugar, however, they can also take a ‘spot’ of milk. A delightful, cup of the best of the high elevations of Darjeeling.

STEEPING INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Bring unfiltered water to a gentle boil to approximately 90 deg. Celsius (208 deg Fah).
  2. Place 1 tsp tea (2.5 gms approx.) per cup in a pre-heated teapot, and pour the water from above.
  3. In case of several cups, add a tsp. extra for the pot.
  4. Steep for 3-4 mins. as per taste.
  5. Tastes best on it’s own
ENHANCE THE FLAVOUR

Sometimes the best things are best left alone, however, these teas can absorb just a spot of milk if desired .

SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRING

A perfect tea for anytime of the day, but it does make for a special mid-morning cuppa with some small bites. Is also a great cup for a good, and elaborate English High Tea afternoon with cakes, and sweet bakery products.

Pastries, Cookies, and Madelines go well with this delicate tea as does a light sandwich. A personal favourite is a piece of well-crafted chocolate with nuts, and raisins.
