Note: This was another tea that is not sold on their website. However, they do have available another Darjeeling online.

Leaf Quality
The dry leaves of this Darjeeling are not as colorful as others I’ve had. There were no light green or Pale-yellow hues to any of the laves. It smelled very much like a Ceylon Pekoe tea. Only some stems were found, along with some broken leaf pieces.

The brewed leaves showed more color. Nice green, red, and yellow showed up. Hints of chocolate, leather, and malty apple aromas were also present.

Brewed Tea
The brewed tea smelled of butter, honey, and slightly malty. It reminded me of buttered biscuits. The tea had a very beautiful copper color. As for the taste: it was malty, and buttery with a nice chocolate finish- just like its aroma.

This is a wonderful cup of tea. So far, I’m impressed with the Durango Coffee Co.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

I love drinking and reviewing tea. Green, Oolong, Black, White, Yellow, Dark, Pu-erh… It’s all great. In particular, my favorites are Taiping Hou Kui, and Aged Teas.

I’m currently in California, and started my interest in tea at a very young age. Ever since, I’ve looked for exotic, rare, and even newly-developed teas to try.

It doesn’t end there: I’ll try just about any tea new to me that crosses my path.

I typically brew tea in a traditional manner (different teas require different steeping times and water temperatures, ect…). Whichever directions are on the packaging or website, I tend to follow as well.

I’m also building a private collection of Pu-Erh teas and teas good for Aging. Hopefully, they’ll turn out nice.

Companies: If you are looking for a reviewer for tea, I would be happy to sample any of the teas you offer.

Message me for Sample swapping.
