The woody, musk-scented dry leaves are a mix of dark, coppery browns with an abundance of silvery-gold buds. When infused, the leaves produce a crystal clear, reddish amber liquor with a woody, fruity, & lightly floral nose. The pleasantly brisk infusion is medium bodied with balanced astringency and a bittersweet finish featuring hints of sweetly perfumed muscat grapes, stone fruit and dried flowers.

This item includes 100g of fragrant tea

About Castleton Tea Estate:
The original name of Castleton Tea Estate was Kumseri, but the name "Castleton" became accepted over time since the Eagle’s Crag in the small town of Kurseong, now with a prominent radio/tv tower, seems to loom over the estate’s steep slopes like a castle of sorts. The estate is located outside Kurseong town just off the Hill-Cart Road, and Darjeeling’s famed ‘Toy Train” passes through the estate’s Northeastern section. Originally planted in 1885, the tea estate lies at altitudes ranging from 915-1,830 M (3,000-6,000 ft). It currently produces tea predominantly from China bushes, a few of which are said to be from the original planting in the 1880’s, and it also produces teas from a comparatively small amount of locally-bred cultivars. Castleton Tea Estate is most famous for producing the very first of Darjeeling’s exalted “muscatel” second flush teas in 1985, when it began fetching record prices at the Kolkata tea auction.
