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