Review of Tea: Darjeeling Castleton Muscatel exklusive ftgfop-1 Dj 93 2nd Flush 2013

Castleton Darjeeling Tea Estate :

Originally planted in 1885 by Dr. Charles Graham, the slopes of Castleton span the areas of Kurseong, Pankhabari and the Hill Card Roads. The name Castleton has been derived from a building that looks like a castle and which still exists in Kurseong. This Castle (‘Bank Ghar’) belonged to a money lender who made the grandiose fort. The original name of this garden was Kumseri.

The various sections of these gardens have not been given numbers but names such as Bhalu Khop (bear cave), Jim Basha (the erstwhile manager's domain), Dhobitar (washerman’s clothes line) and Baseri (resting place).

Castleton’s teas are created from select and pure China bushes that are exquisite and delicate. The teas have a rose like fragrance, golden like sun-spun amber and are most prized for their unique ‘muscatel’ which is comparable to sweet summer wines with intense fragrant top notes of musk.

The dry leafs are extremely well sorted, twisted and wiry in appearance. The dry leafs has a rich aroma of chocolates and dates. When steeped for complete 4 minutes the cup releases rich golden liquor and rich flavour of ripe grapes raises high above the cup. Each sip is super smooth which reminds of chocolates, ripe grapes, ripe mangoes and cherries which further leaves classic and sweet muscatel taste which stays on the palate for a long time.

True nectar of 2nd flush 2013 harvest which has multiple layers of exotic flavours in each sip.

A superb muscatel variety Darjeeling tea and a rare find of the 2nd flush harvest which will surely be appreciated by a tea connoisseur.

 

Hodnocení čaj roomu:

  • List je drátkovitého vzhledu vonicí po čokoládě.
  • Nálev je zlato oranžové barvy
  • Chuť je hladká chutnající po čokoládě, zralých hroznů, manga, třešní, višní a celé to ukončuje muscatel na patře, který přetrvá velmi dlouho.
  • Dávám 10/10 bodů

 

Krásný druh sběrový klasický Castleton,si vás získá svým vzhledem, vůní suchého listu a posléze hladkou chutí, která má klasický muscatel na konci, který trvá dlouho a dlouho.
