From Adagio Teas

Black tea from the Darjeeling region of India. Darjeeling tea is treasured for the rich golden liquor and unique muscatel flavor. This tea scores high on both counts. The ‘Darjeeling Rhapsody no. 22’ is a superb second-flush (summer) tea from the highly regarded Risheehat estate. An excellent introduction to this wonderful variety.

Light amber color steep. Kind of a vegetative aroma. Not getting any bitter or astringency. But not really picking up on the sweetness. Could be the juice i had with lunch though making this seem not sweet (in comparison it of course isn’t).

Usually black teas are pretty straight forward when it comes to preparation, this one, however; I find easy to over-steep. When over-steeped, it gets very bitter and actually makes me sick to my stomach. When brewed correctly though, it is somewhat enjoyable and has a rather soothing aroma.

this has a very delicate flavor, its sweet and light. the color was much lighter than i expected. it has a somewhat earthy taste that i like. wated to try something un-flavored and found this tin in the back so decided to give it a go! im glad i did. its a great way to start my night of studying :)

I don’t drink black teas at all, but I wanted to at least give a darjeeling a shot. I wasn’t disappointed. It’s a very lovely black that doesn’t prove to be very overpowering for my green-and-white-preferred tongue. It’s over-caffeinated for someone of my tolerance — I was shaking after a couple cups! Great with milk and honey.

This is a wonderful black tea. Smooth, complex, not bitter, slightly fruity.

I was in the mood for this today. I steep it for 4 minutes and find that it gives me a nice flavor that is neither too strong or bitter. Smells good and has a lovely color. Have about one cup left of the sample so I suppose I need to order a full size seeing as this is one of the only straight (non-flavored) black teas I enjoy.
