From Arbor Teas

This Fair Trade Certified organic green tea is another example of the wonderful offerings coming out of the Makaibari Estate in India. Biodynamically farmed in India’s Darjeeling district, this organic loose leaf tea exhibits many of the same qualities of the black teas of this region, but with an unoxidized leaf. The varying leaf colors (ranging from green to brown to white) produce an easy-to-drink cup. This organic Indian tea also exhibits slightly lemony, vegetal and earthy qualities akin to other Darjeeling teas. Established in 1859, Makaibari is the oldest estate in Darjeeling, where a strong commitment to sustainable farming prevails.

I really have enjoyed this green tea. It is very smooth and pleasantly sweet, with a light vegetal tone and a lovely citrus-y overtone. Very mellow, relaxing, calming… and at the same time, restorative.

I notice some similarities to a Darjeeling in this tea, as it was grown in the same region. It has the lemon-y note, and even some woodsy tones in the background that are very Darjeeling-esque, however, this tea lacks the astringency that I usually would experience with a Darjeeling. It isn’t as crisp as a Darjeeling, instead, I find this to be rather smooth and mellow.

A very nice offering from Arbor Teas.
