Description: Specially produced for us for the 160th Jubilee celebration of the Steinthal Estate, this 2012 production is a testament to the art of handcrafted tea. Select clonal plants were chosen for a fine plucking, performed at sunrise to ensure optimal flavor. The bold leaves and plump white buds were then hand-rolled to produce the beautiful leaf. The medium golden-amber liquid has a sparkling quality, with a lively mouth feel, eminently smooth character, notes of dark grapes and light hints of citrus.
Steeping Suggestions: - Leaf Quantity: 2¼ g/cup Water Temp: 212º (boiling) Steep Time: 3 min.
"Lively yet full bodied with pronounced muscatel character, this small lot wil go fast! It's very complex, almost oolong charecter reveals itself with each sip. A smooth cup and a wonderful treat for any time of day."
