This FTGFOP1 Muscatel Darjeeling comes from the Sourenee Estate in India's Mirik Valley. While there are perhaps many better known estates we could buy from, for me, Sourenee consistently produces teas I actually want to drink. This particular second flush Darjeeling truly provides a great example of what a fine Muscatel Darjeeling should taste like.
- Muscatel grapes and honey, hints of floral with light citrus edges.
- Sweet muscatel grapes, honey, hints of floral with just the slightest of citrus edges.
- Longer & Less - for a typical European style of brewing Red Jade we recommend:
1 tsp (3g) of loose leaf tea per person into a pot of freshly boiled water. Infuse for around 2 minutes. For subsequent infusions increase the time by 1 minute each round.
Can be infused 2-3 times this way.
Shorter & More - for a more traditional Asian (Gong Fu) style of brewing Red Jade we recommend:
1 flat tbsp (7g) of loose leaf tea with around 150ml of freshly boiled water. Infuse for around 30 seconds. For subsequent infusions increase the time by 10-15 seconds each round.
Can be infused 4-5 times this way.
