"Knowing this would be a fuller bodied cup than my usual darjeeling, this was a very nice drinking (and smelling) experience. I tend to order those with more citrus and/or floral notes than muscatel but wanted a different experience. Too much leaf in the steep makes for an astringent experience that masks floral nuances, so go on the lesser side until you find it to your liking." Kevin Knox
