From the Darjeeling region in West Bengal, India, has traditionally
been prized above all other black teas. When properly brewed it
yields a thin-bodied, light-colored liquor with a floral aroma. The
flavor also displays a tinge of astringent tannic characteristics, and
a musky spiciness often referred to by tea connoisseurs as “muscatel.”
Darjeeling tea cannot be grown or manufactured anywhere else in the
world, similar to Champagne in that region of France.
