|"It has all the classic markers of a quality Darjeeling and all the flavours of a Puttabong."|
One tablespoon per six ounces, 180°, 4 minutes. The prepared tea smells bright and amazing and, predictably, of muscatel. The flavour is the classic Puttabong profile: Rich and strongly muscatel. It is fruity with slight popcorn notes, and it goes down the gullet as smoothly as any Darjeeling. It has a great deal of depth of flavour, scent, and even aftertaste.
As was probably safe to assume, this tea does not disappoint. It has all the classic markers of a quality Darjeeling and all the flavours of a Puttabong. The leaf was clearly stored and treated well on the part of Mark T. Wendell. I have little experience with the company, but especially after this experience, I am liking the cut of their jib.
