Turzum Muscatel Darjeeling Organic 2nd flush
Turzum, part of the Sungma/Turzum joint estate, is purported to be one of the most beautiful in the Darjeeling region, located in the RungBong valley, close to the Mirik lake town and Sonada, at elevations from 1100-1700m and was originally established in 1863 then amalgamated in 1934 after a large earthquake destroyed the Sungma tea factory.
Dry, the tea has a classic dark bigger leaf with a fair amount of silvery and light golden tips, and a pleasant thick aroma of forest honey, Dutch cocoa and ripe blackberries.
After steeping for 5 minutes we get a dark golden orange sparkling cup with a well balanced medium to heavy taste of the classic Darjeeling teas and hints of mature forest fruits, honey, chocolate and muscatel.
A beautiful tea suited to the lovers of big, bold, full bodied teas with layers of flavour…yum.!
