Details

The complex range of flavours is described as having nuances of sweet cantaloupe, honey, fresh grapes, lychee, spice, dark fruit, burnt caramelised sugar, dried rose, camellia, the rich, nectar-like 'Muscatel' character and toasted, buttery finish. The second flush term refers to teas plucked during May to June in the gardens of Darjeeling. Each ‘invoice’ from the 90 or so gardens is unique and amounts to approximately just 90kgs. The best of these teas are picked with the bushes in full sap during a short 3-4 week period in late June and early July. The famous 'muscatel' character is truly in evidence then. ‘Muscatel’ is variously described as reminiscent of muscatel grapes, a fragrance like a rose garden in bloom or the sweet scent of peach skin and honey. The teas we source are from gardens where sound social and environmental policies are in place. They belong to many associations including IMO, USDA Organic, India Organic, Ethical Tea Partnership, Fairtrade, UTZ and Rainforest Alliance. The Mim garden was once managed by a British manager who died due to a sudden illness. After his death, it was his wife who started taking care of it. Thus people referred to this garden as a Mem Kaman which in the local Nepali language means a garden run by Memsahib (a word used to address British ladies). In the course of time, the word Mem became Mim and it remains today. Located at an elevation ranging up to 6800 feet, Mim grows some exclusive organic black, white and oolong teas every season. It is one of the very few estates with over 80% China bushes. It produces over 100,00 kgs of Darjeeling teas every year. Mim is in the Jorebunglow Sukiapokhri village.
