A wonderful muscatel flavour with rich but delicate strength. This tea has all the hallmarks of a premium 2nd flush tea and will appeal to the fine Darjeeling lover. Wonderful muscatel highlights with delicate strength - the hallmark of a premium 2nd flush Darjeeling. Tends light liquoring with subtle astringency and classic muscatel character. 2nd flush Darjeelings are typified as being more complex and fuller in the cup than the 1st Flush varieties which tend to be a little greener and lighter. Darjeelings are considered among the rarest and most prestigious of the black teas. The estate is near the town of Kurseong in the Darjeeling district of northern India. Castleton is one of the top estates in Darjeeling and consistently produces top teas - and not surprisingly obtains the top prices. The major method of transportation to Darjeeling is road (very treacherous) and a narrow gauge railway. In world terms the railway is almost considered a toy railroad system. The narrow gauge does not support large engines or carriages; also the steep inclines necessitate a cog system to prevent to trains from rolling backwards. Despite all the difficulties that must be contended with the area produces the 'Champagne of Tea'.Produced in the Himalayas Darjeelings are grown in the shadow of Kangchenjunga the snow capped mountain said to be home of the Hindu God "Shiva"-the Destroyer. Darjeeling means 'land of the thunderbolt' and it is in fact the weather combined with the altitude, soil and bright sunlight that result in an incomparable beverage.

Please keep up the good work. Consistency is everything, and is not easy to deliver. Quality teas mean a lot to me: I speak from experience, having spent a lifetime on the Tea Gardens in Assam and a lot of time in Darjeeling, I know the industry well.
