I own David’s Darjeeling and enjoy it, so I grabbed two samples of this for comparison.

It’s dark and musky, soft and smooth, slightly sweet and very earthy. It smells like a walk in the woods after the rain has stopped.

I’m drinking it in my forest mug too! I can’t tell if it’s better than the other Darjeeling but I do like it.

I have this strange recollection that someone at a DT store said that one “new” darjeeling was just David’s Darjeeling with a new name…. No idea if it would be this one or not.

I was wondering if they were the same, but I haven’t had my other long enough to really remember! It doesn’t look as though you can buy David’s Darjeeling anymore though: a search just brings up this or Himalayan Blend for Darjeeling.

I think this was just a rename to distinguish it from the one season where they carried a limited edition first flush version.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
