I ordered a bunch of Darjeeling samples from Upton, and I couldn’t wait any longer to try some out. Since most Darjeelings I’ve tried before have been second flushes, I figured I’d start with this one.

In the bag the only way I could describe how this smells is fresh. It just smells really clean, but not like much else.

This blows all the rest of the Darjeelings I’ve had out of the water, wow. It is so sweet and fruity. As it cooled, I really started to get the pecan taste. I love it! I’ve been thinking how there’s really not pecan in tea, well, who needs it when this tastes just like it. The fruity taste seems somewhat orange-lemony.

Definitely will be getting more of this when I use up my lesser Darjeelings!

Decided to give it a second steep and it worked beautifully. There’s less pecan and more orange this time around but the flavor is still strong.

Oh!…they came! I’m super glad that you love the first one, since I pushed you (a wee bit) into an Upton order. Will start adding samples to my wishlist as you review : )

I was just going thru their catalog today, and was gonna order this soon. Looks like I’ll have too-it’s about to sell out.

Ooh I’ll have to get more sooner than later then. I know I got 2 that were on the cusp of selling out but I didn’t mark which ones…should do that just in case!
