I love it when a tea ‘takes me to another place’ and Giddapahar SFTGFOP 1 CH Muscatel 2nd Flush 2016 Darjeeling Exclusive from Lochan Tea Limited did just that.
Giddapahar Estate – is a small family owned Darjeeling Tea Estate and is located on a mountain – also known as “Eagles Cliff” – just a short drive from Kurseong – the garden is situated at 4864 feet above sea level. It’s said that from the estate you can view the magnificent site of the mountains and when I sip on Giddapahar SFTGFOP 1 CH Muscatel 2nd Flush 2016 Darjeeling Exclusive from Lochan Tea Limited I almost feel like I am right there!
This ‘brews’ to a darker brown – not quite coffee-black – but still pretty brown in color. The aroma of the dry leaf is crisp and airy with a bit of fruit to the nose. Once infused it smells more muscatel. Giddapahar SFTGFOP 1 CH Muscatel 2nd Flush 2016 Darjeeling Exclusive from Lochan Tea Limited tastes VERY muscatel which makes this live up to its name. The end sip is that of dark chocolate, slightly-bitter floral notes, and pitted fruit
This is a sturdy darjeeling! Giddapahar SFTGFOP 1 CH Muscatel 2nd Flush 2016 Darjeeling Exclusive from Lochan Tea Limited is ideal for those who are looking for a more masculine flavor in a darjeeling tea. Me…I enjoyed the entire tea experience!
