drank Ooooh Darjeeling by Adagio Teas
86 tasting notes

Maybe the first flush Darjeeling I just drank is clouding my judgment but I am not uttering any ‘ooohs’ or ‘aaahs,’ that’s for sure.

The aroma coming from the tin is very Darjeeling-like and absolutely delicious and I couldn’t wait to brew some. My excitement ended as soon as I took a sip. The tea tastes surprisingly bland, it’s some sort of generic dark oolong with a hint of muscatel which is discernible if you try real hard to find it. Or maybe I’m even imagining it because I know it’s Darjeeling and it is supposed to be there.

I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea all my life. I always take tea plain without adding any sweetener or milk to it. Would love to swap for tea, feel free to contact me about it.
