After watching a Wuyi documentary last night I had to try this free sample from Upton. Scottish botantist Robert Fortune stole or acquired tea seeds and plants for India from China. Darjeeling was the first plantings. The dry leaf smelled of pepper. The brew was decent. Subtle Muscatel. I am sure this is not a top flight Darjeeling. I am enjoying it but it’s not one of those teas where I go immediately to the website to order.

You will see in the one video where I got my desire to try it….

yes I think that was #3, pretty interesting piece of tea history there.

I’ve had other second flush that I like much more than the first. Bummer that this isn’t one of them.
