I infused the Tea for 4/5 minutes and a boil of 195 195˚F the tea has fruity flavours indeed and floral aromas in the second cup .

The Muscatel is a house patent of Makaibari Tea Estate. The true flavour of what we know as Muscatel comes only from Muscatel. The Makaibari TE have a Muscatel because of the soil altitude and geagraphical placement. No Tea estate can claim mystical reminiscence and opulance Muscatel taste and flavor. There fore if someone see carefully the Invoices of different TE. Makaibari just write Muscatel as one of their feature while other Tea estate has to name the Tea estate with Muscatel like turzum muscatel and castelton Muscatel, infact its not true. I wonder how these TE derive to Muscatel, the Muscatel taste and flavour from the tea estates other than Makaibari is a DERIVED one. The body, liquor , strength and briskness may be same, but not the flavor that is true muscatel. since the body, liquor strenght and briskness remains the same they derive a taste called muscatel but in truth it is not Muscatel.

In short since Muscatel is a flavour associated with tea and due to geagraphical placement and other conditions Makaibari produces the same flavour they have house patent of Muscatel. Muscatel tea can only be associated with Makaibari and all other claims stands false by other Tea estate, they may be closer to Muscatel but not a true msucatel.
