   This elegant tea has a leaf style and appearance, which can only come from expert handcrafting. The flavor is delicate and complex, with hints of honeydew and winter melon, as well as flowery notes in both the cup and aroma. This selection is a true testament to the art of fine tea making, and testimony to the renowned Castleton appellation. (Better order some soon if you are interested. The staff at Upton Tea Imports are pretty fond of this one!)

Employee Recommendations:

"This isn't a typical second flush Darjeeling tea as it is a special, super bold leaf production. I used 3 times as much tea leaves as I normally do (3t instead of 1t) and steeped for 3 minutes in boiling point (212F) water. The fragrant aroma is of fresh apricots. The flavor is smooth and delicate with notes of apricot, melon and a gentle, lingering floral nuance. Steeping it longer might strengthen the flavor notes, however, it will still taste more like a first flush than a second flush tea."
