From Adagio Teas

Black tea from the Darjeeling region of India. If you enjoy Darjeeling tea, you are sure to appreciate this ‘wonder.’ The ‘Darjeeling Rhapsody no. 2’ is a second-flush (summer) hand-made ‘wonder’ tea from the upper reaches (7000 feet above sea level) of the Gopaldhara estate. It is a gorgeous-looking clonal tea with a sublime taste to match.

My first tea made gongfu style! This is milder than I expected and I was pleasantly surprised.

I steeped for 30 seconds to start. The tea was a very pale amber. The flavor was very light, and slightly sweet.

I did another steep of 30 seconds and the tea darkened slightly. I didn’t notice much difference in the flavor, other than that it was stronger.

I did the last steep for 3 minutes. I think subtlety may be lost on me, because I greatly preferred the longer steep time. The tea was a darker amber, the scent was lovely and the flavor was just more pronounced, which I prefer.

I also purchased the Adagio Darjeeling Sungma Summer. I think I’ll brew these side by side tomorrow and see if I can taste the differences.

Smooth mouthfeel. You hardly feel the swallow the way you can with some teas—they can get a little bitter at the back of the palate.

I tried #2 (this one) and #22 today…..I liked them both, but this one had less of a finishing astringency. I also tend to like lighter flavors, so this makes perfect sense.

almost perfect, very clean scent of earth and woods, with a lovely floral, lime, woodsy flavor

Has been one of my favourites since I first tried it many years ago. Wonderful muscatel flavour.

This is nice but I think I prefer #22 a bit more. Enjoyed it with a mini Cannoli.
