This is the third Darjeeling green tea I’ve had the pleasure of imbibing, the second from the Arya Tea Estate. The other was the Emerald, which was considered the top green tea from there. I would disagree, though. Elixir puts up a compelling argument with its rich, strawberry leaf-like…well…elixir. One can even be liberal with the steep time for it and not end up with a spinached brew. For me, it was up there with Longjing and Mao Jian.
This is a really good white tea. That being said it maintains a hit of that characteristic Darjeeling muscatel flavor which you find in all the regions black teas. My experience with it has been that it is much lighter than this websites description of it. Darjeeling is just starting to produce good green and white teas, but they don’t quite have it dialed yet. You won’t be disappointed with the Arya, but if you are looking for a sublime experience you may want to look elsewhere. I tend to drink this in the afternoon when I want some tea, but don’t want to commit to much stimulation. It’s absolutely worth a try if you’re into Darjeeling’s.
