VSRT (Very Special Rare Tea) Tea Bag Tea & Loose Leaf - BLACK
A distinctive and refined experience in tea, fine Darjeeling comes from India's most famous Darjeeling . This is a Single Estate Darjeeling Tea, grown at 7,000 feet above sea level and within sight of Mount Everest. It offers the characteristically subtle, delicate and sophisticated taste of the best of Darjeeling. The leaf is dark brown with hints of olive, developing to a golden infusion when brewed. The light liquor is slightly floral and has a prominent Muscatel note in its finish. The liquor maintains a slight piquancy and character whilst overall being soft and gentle.
Various shades of dark browns, greens, yellows and a hint of blue in this mixed loose twist leaf are eye-catching. The infused leaf, cut and broken green leaf with red edges are unexpected. Liquor of dark gold and orange. Light aromas of tobacco and hay hint of a delicate tea. However this is a medium bodied tea of medium astringency. A strong upfront bitterness is detectable in the mouth and the flavor of flowers and oak present themselves in a tea that has a refined nature. There is even a hint of Muscat in the flavor. An enthralling tea.
