I had this one misfiled as a green/oolong, and I believe it’s a Darjeeling — and wow, what a nice one! Big old fluffy leaves that are, indeed, silvery. At just 2 1/2 minutes, it’s a light copper color with what I think is the fruitiest flavor I’ve ever encountered with a Darjeeling. Almost apple cidery. Medium weight and very silky to the tongue.

Since SpecialTeas is obsolete now, I’ll have to putter a bit and see if this variety is available under another umbrella.

Check Upton Teas, they have a ton of darjeeling…

Amy, my Upton catalog is rife with highlighted longings and desires; unfortunately, my available funds for longings and desires keeps getting eaten up by necessities and unexpected unfortunatenesses ;) Soldiering on with my summer plan to use up scraps and stuff that’s getting old, with a nice treat-y order in time for good tea weather.

Bio

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
