This is a good, gentle Darjeeling, which is a kind introduction into the world of Darjes, if you are new to it. A colleague picked up this tin at work and said, “I love this tea’s smell, let’s make some”, so I dutifully brewed up a batch. This is no morning brew, as it brews light (as all Darjeelings do), and it actually doesn’t have the famous, desirable “muscatel” notes, but rather more citrusy, and with an ethereal note to it. It lacks the amazing body that Ronnefeldt’s Darjeeling Earl Grey has, but it still is a very good, bright tea.

Bio

An Israeli computer programmer with a passion for tea (mostly bought in yearly shopping sprees in the UK), particularly black, oolong and white. I don’t generally enjoy flavoured teas or herbal infusions, but if a tea sounds interesting and smells nice I’ll most definitely try it. I drink several cups of tea a day, usually one or two in the morning, another one after lunch and one or two in the evening. My favourite tea so far is Lao Cong Zi Ya from Norbu Tea, but I’m constantly trying new teas. Only in the past year have I branched into Pu’erh and non-roasted oolongs. Finding good tea in Israel is difficult, so I import most of my teas from yearly visits to London, or from online retailers. If you see something in my cupboard that sparks your interest and you would like to swap with me, then please message me. I’m almost always up for a swap.
