Tea Review: Monsoon Darjeeling (Chesser Roe)

Monsoon Darjeeling
Chesser Roe
Type: Black
Origin: India, Darjeeling
Product Description:
Grown at a high elevation in the foothills of the Himalayas by the Prakash family and carefully harvested during the monsoon season that lends its name, this tea brews up light bodied and bright, with a gold liquor, distinct notes of honey, toast and apricot, and a lovely, dry finish.
Temperature: 195° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have a lightly sweet white grape and floral aroma with grain-like notes.

The copper-orange infusion has a sweet and lightly savory floral aroma with hints of smoke, caramel and muscat grape.

The taste is sweet, lightly citrus, and floral with mild astringency.

This tea had pleasantly intriguing muscatel-like flavor notes and I found that I most enjoyed the results from a 2 minute steeping.  However, for those that prefer something more brisk, steeping for 3-5 minutes is the way to go.

This tea was purchased by me.
