Farm Fresh Red Panda Picked Darjeeling Samples Available

We had a cupping of various farm fresh Darjeeling from our source in Darjeeling.

I was never a big fan of Darjeeling since most of the Darjeeling I have tried before was too dry, bitter or just didn’t live up to my expectations. However, I totally fell in love with Darjeeling after these cuppings.

It makes a difference when the Darjeeling you are drinking is fresh and from the source vs from some company who stored it in a warehouse for a couple years.

After the cuppings of over 10 estate teas ranging from $6 an ounce to $30 an ounce we took the remainder and made our own farm fresh darjeeling blend from the top 5 estates.

We called this blend: Red Panda Picked Darjeeling in honor of the mascot of the International Tea Festival in Darjeeling.

We have roughly 15 sample packs available for customers to try themselves.

We are selling 9 gram samples for $5 due to the fact that this blend contains a mixed grade of leaf from high grade to super high grade leaf.

The taste is full of florals and musketel grapes. Exactly the way good Darjeeling should taste.

Now that I am addicted to fresh darjeeling. I need an excuse to keep it in stock and grab the last of the 2010 2nd and Autumn Flushes from these estates.

We currently still have the $5 flat rate shipping and free shipping over $35 offer which ends on March 1st. So hurry!

Also, farm fresh Hawaii Grown Oolong samples are in stock as well!
