Finishing off the rest of this sample today – pretty nice and sweet for a 2nd flush darjeeling. See previous notes for more info.

I just noticed RtR has two 2012 FF darjeelings now on their site. They both look good but the Tumsong is incredibly expensive… ouch

I’ve paid that much a few times for 50 grams but wouldn’t do it again unless I try a sample first. However, $7 for a 6 gram sample is pretty steep too-we’ll see. I’ve been waiting on their FF Thurbo.

I’ve probably spent enough money on darjeelings for a while but we’ll see. :)

You are making me crave Darjeeling….

I am a bit obsessed with the darjeeling lately…

How come the Discussion Board doesn’t have a FF Darjeeling thread like they do for Spring Greens?

TeaBrat

because nobody has started one… :-P

How much does this Chamong cost? I think a teashop in my country has it and it’s about 4 EUR / 50 gr. Not sure about grade though.

Oh Amy-yes, we will see. I had this tea from Harney’s years ago. It was processed like an Oolong.

@kOmpir- I don’t remember, it might still be on RtRs website

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
