Classical muscatel grape notes are enhanced by sweet florals and more body than is usually found in teas from this region. This tea should be enjoyed without milk or lemon and there is no need for sugar since it is naturally sweet. Tea leaves and hot water are all that is required to enjoy the complex flavours of this outstanding tea!
Storm have sourced this organic second flush tea from the Makaibari Tea Garden in the Kurseong region of Darjeeling. Established in 1859, it is one of the oldest tea gardens in the region and provides work for more than 1,500 people from seven local villages. The fourth generation owners care deeply about the people who work in their tea gardens and provide them with schools, libraries, computer training centres and housing. This caring approach is given over to the land as well with 70% of the estate remaining under forest where the local wildlife is protected.
