This highly fragrant black tea comes from the Himalayan state of Sikkim, neighbouring Darjeeling.

The entire state converted to organic agriculture between 2003 - 2016 and now produces some of the purest, sustainable and truly exquisite tea in India.

A Very Delicious Second Flush Black Tea

The Sikkim 2nd Flush Muscatel tea tastes full-bodied and fruity, just as I like it for a second flush tea from the Himalayas. Its strong and sweet-fruity aroma and delicious fragrance is very good. This shows the careful selection of good teas. Thank you very much, dear Henrietta!

Excellent, balanced tea

This is a lovely, gentle tea that has some complexity to it. The muscatel flavor is balanced. And the story behind it is fascinating, too.

A fragrant delight

I've long been a fan of Darjeeling, but I now wholeheartedly agree with Henrietta's assessment that Sikkim's teas are now perhaps finer after tasting this lovely tea. I was blown away by the elegant floral bouquet that lingered on my palate that was so well-balanced with the silky body of the tea. The fragrance conjures up the heady scent of a garden of a luscious blooms after a brief summer thunderstorm. I've been lucky enough to have Henrietta's teas at Claridge's and Restaurant Noma the past few years, and they were all extraordinary in their complementary nature with the food, but this tea was a singularly transportive tea experience that I had in the comfort of my own home on a gloomy Sunday morning.
