drank Spring Darjeeling by Adagio Teas
335 tasting notes

One of my favorites. It has a lively “bite” and sparkling character.

Just checked Spring Darjeeling from MARIAGE FRÈRES. 30,00 € Hmmm … I’ll stick with Adagio for now.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 45 sec

I believe Adagio is selling their Spring Darjeeling for USD19 for 2 ounces. If you do the math, the prices of Mariage and Adagio comes out about even. 4 ounces is about 100g. 30 Euros is USD38.

You can find two great Darjeelings from Mariage(Jungpana Spring, Bloomfield Spring) for 28 Euros, which is a lower price than Adagio’s Spring Darjeeling. You can also find Mariage Spring Darjeelings (Orange Valley, Geille, and Princeton) all of them be less than 20 Euros.

One thing I hhate about Mariage Freres is they do not offer free shipping regardless of how much you order.

Thanks for the input. Shipping makes a difference + with Adagio you get customer loyalty discount and it all ads up. I still like Marriage teas; I think they are great. Do you know any other vendor that sells Spring Darjeeling?

Excelsior

I’ve had some good ones from Tea Trekker. They have great customer service. Thunderbolt also have some good Spring Darjeelings but sometimes it takes up to a month to receive your teas from them.

Thanks for the advice; much appreciated.
