I’d not paid attention to if I’d had a darjeeling tea before, so I figured I’d get a cup of this with lunch to see if I could note anything of interest. Luckily, the place that I had lunch at is skilled in the ways of tea making, and actually uses a timer to make sure things steep correctly before serving it!

The tea was good. Lighter than other black teas, floral notes, mild, with very little astringency. I know Adagio offers several darjeelings, so I’d like to try samples of the different ones at some point to learn what the commonalities are between darjeelings. That, and I want to try samples of other black teas to learn more about regions, etc, and to know more about a black tea by taste. All that is to come in the future, though….

I wonder how this compares to their “Ooooh Darjeeling”. Similar name, similar flavor and aroma profiles?

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

100: a perfect cuppa. these are the teas I’ll keep in my cupboard and tend to be one per type of tea.

90-99: will definitely get more of this tea

80-89: likely to get more and perhaps it will become a favorite with time

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard

30-39: okay, will try again, maybe

20-29: meh. I’d try this tea again if no other were available

10-19: drinkable, but a forced cup

0-9: didn’t even finish the cup
