Cultivar: China Bush
Harvest Season: June
Darjeeling represents a small, mountainous microclimate in the Himalayan Foothills, where heirloom small-leaf "China Bush" tea plant cultivars thrive to create black teas of signature flavor. Each year, the very best micro-lots of the 2nd Flush harvest in June are denoted as "Muscatel" because their luscious aromas evoke the succulent, lychee-like sweetness of muscat grapes and Moscato wine.
This year's top selection from the Chamong Estate offers a pleasant briskness with the classic hints of white peach often found in Chamong teas.
Ingredients: Organic and Fair Trade Certified™ black tea
Water Temperature: 200°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 1st infusion 4 minutes, 2nd infusion 4-5 minutes.
We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.
