Mim is located in the Darjeeling area of Northern India, this Darjeeling is grown in higher altitudes and in cooler temperatures where the bush grows slowly and therefore provides limited production.
Due to the superb taste and limited production, these Darjeelings are generally more expensive. The best time of the year for quality is during the 'second flush' (May through June)
During this time the Darjeelings are at their best, the fragrance and taste is a complex bouquet that will reach out to you. Some would describe the taste as nutty, others find it reminds them of black currents, but most often, it is described as similar to the taste and fragrance of muscat grapes.
Harvested in May - June, these teas are more fully developed. The liquor is bright and the taste full and round excellent muscatel.
A superb afternoon tea.
