Tasting Notes: Semi-sweet white with crème brûlée notes.
Biographical Notes: One of the best-kept local secrets, a Valvin Muscat has one of the most beautiful aromas of fresh-cut flowers followed by a soft, light sweetness.
Pairing Notes: Spicy foods, sharp and strong cheeses, particularly gorgonzola.
Name Notes: Women have heard all the lines, all the descriptions. They are angels raised up on pedestals. They are puppeteers behind successful men. They are vixens who put men under a spell. But tea bags? That's right. As Eleanor Roosevelt quipped, "A woman is like a tea bag - you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water." Here's to Iron Goddess of Mercy, Jasmine Dragon Pear, and, of course, Gunpowder Tea.
Label Notes: Take note of the globe on the tea string and find it on other labels. You just may see it in other labels...
