Taking a little break right now, enjoying a cup of this watching Gary Numan live! https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=uzLe-ufp_Zw#t=112. I haven’t listened to Gary Numan in a while and I’ve been meaning to pick up his latest album. Maybe I will peruse Amazon and pick it up. Most bands seem to turn out less awesome music with age but he is just awesome. The tea goes well with the video.

I must say there is definitely a sweet spot with this tea. There is a point between floral (too diluted) and astringent (too strong) that is just absolutely perfect. At that point, wonderful notes of Brazil nuts, burned chocolate, wood, and earth are present. It makes an excellent substitute for my beloved PTA but it does take more work to get it to its ideal point. Out of all the Darjeelings I tasted this year, this was certainly the most unique. While, still a high graded tea this was one of the cheaper teas at the estate but I just felt like it had the most flavor and it is an excellent value. Right now it is on sale for $3.75 an ounce.

Hi Sil-I’m going to make a Facebook post when we are down to the last batch. I can tag you in the comment. I suspect that this one could be around for a while though. Even though its limited, we still have a lot of it.

Stacy, Gary Numan for real? Did you end up buying it? I did last week…I can’t believe how current he is after so many years! Mind you, he was very «avant-garde» from the get go…

Butiki Teas

TheTeaFairy-Yes, I did end up buying it! Splinter is soooo good! He is surprisingly very current. I also ended up buying tickets to his concert and he put on an amazing show. :)

TheTeaFairy

Yes it’s so good! It’s as if Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails had evolved and merged into one new super band :-)
Lucky you, based on the link you provided, I understand how it must have been a great show!

Bio

My taste for tea started at an early age. As a child, I would frequently enjoy a cup of tea with my family. Tea has always been a significant part of my life, through all the challenges and all the accomplishments and celebrations. Naturally, I became interested in the variety of high quality teas and the very culture that encompasses tea. Today, I want to share my passion and love of tea through Butiki Teas.
