The dry leaves are beautifully dark, long and twisted, and are predominantly composed of complete/whole leaves. There is a distinctive malty aroma in the wet and dry leaves which is strongly reminiscent of the famous black teas of Yunnan and Assam. When infused, the flavor profile is malty and sweet with a bit of fruit, a bit of spice, and very low astringency.
The dry leaves of this incredible Jungpana Tea Estate Second Flush Darjeeling Muscatel black tea are dark brown to black with burgundy-brown flecks, a large amount of silvery-gold buds, and a rich, woody-sweet aroma. When infused, the leaves produce a deep amber liquor with a musky, woody & floral nose. In the cup, the infusion is bold, full-bodied and smooth with a perfectly balanced, assertive astringency that carries the luscious, sweet, musky/floral/fruity muscatel notes across the palate through to the impressively long-lasting, graceful, bittersweet finish.
This tea, from a small farm in the Guzhu Mountain area of China’s Zhejiang Province, was picked and processed entirely by hand using the standard of two tiny leaves and one bud to preserve the integrity of these tiny, beautiful, near-perfect leaf sets. The dry leaves have a mild, sweet, green vegetable aroma with just a hint of nuttiness, and when steeped they produce a beautifully clear, light yellow liquor with a beautifully sweet aroma. The infusion is very fresh, subtly sweet, clean, and lightly floral with a silky-smooth mouthfeel and a lovely & lingering bittersweet aftertaste.
Oriental Moon is comprised of hand picked, mostly in tact "two leaves & a bud" sets, making it a beautiful sight to behold both wet and dry. The dry leaves are mostly silvery green with a large percentage of obvious silver buds. The infusion is a bright honey-amber color that is very smooth & crisp with low astringency and lovely fruity & floral notes.
