    KNOW YOUR TEA

    Established in 1869, the Seeyok Tea Estate in Darjeeling is considered one of the most iconic tea gardens in the world. An organic plantation that is situated in Mirik Darjeeling, we have procured this rare Muscatel picked at 5000 feet. This Indian summer flush 2021 delicacy is medium-bodied, brisk, and fruity. As you begin sipping, notes of Muscat grapes and luscious peach arrive on the palate and stay for the entire length of the cup. Notes of cedar and chestnuts encircle towards the middle with delicious accents of Rainer cherries in the aftertaste. A memorable cup of second flush 2021!

    taste

    A medium-bodied, brisk cup which feels ample in the mouth and beams with vibrant fruity attributes. The liquor opens with delectable notes of Muscat grapes interlaced with luscious tones of peach which envelop the palate right at the start and gradually grow into prominence; rendering a distinct character to the liquor. Subtle undertones of chestnuts married with fleeting accents of cedar come through around the edges, adding to the soiree of flavors in this superlative Muscatel cup. Delightful notes of rainier cherries can be perceived towards the finish, which lingers on making for a sublime experience of Muscatels from this fabled tea estate.
