Description

We have often bought from this estate in the Mirik Valley. You can count on Binod Mohan of Tea Promoters and his staff to make great tea. The growers allow a leafhopper (Jacobiasca formosana) to attack the tea leaves. The plants release a compound in self-defense that we find deliciously similar in flavor to muscatel grapes. It has an interesting story: the tea plant protects itself from insect attack by creating a compound that has a wonderful muscatel aroma.

Ingredients

Black tea.
