From Canton Tea Co

Green Darjeeling tea is a rare and delightful treat.. This one from the Arya estate in Darjeeling is delicious and rivals many of the best Chinese green teas.

The leaves are small and delicate; a mix of gold and sea green leaves with small downy buds that respond well to a cooler brewing temperature and shorter steeping time. Once brewed, the clean light liquor gives off a wonderfully floral and fruity aroma. The taste evokes plump, juicy fruits: a subtle pear and grape note that lingers long on the palate.

My first ever green darjeeling, and boy this tea is good stuff!

I’m comparing this tea to a yellow gold, or any other green oolong tea. I know its a green tea, but the creaminess and freshness from these curled leafs are wonderful.

Sweet, light citrus in taste and a bit creamy… one off the best green tea’s i drank in recent times. Have to say that u can easily get 3 and if you brew long enough even a 4th cup out off one teaspoon of leafs.

I used a 2m15 sec brew time for my first cup, upping the brew time with 1min for each cup after that. The color of this brewed tea is a light green that gets a bit intenser in color after more cups and longer steep time. Only downside was that this tea is on the expensive side… but i had some luck i ordered this with canton’s sale a while back and i’m happy i had the opportunity to afford it.

Oh, btw i used a 70°c water temperature for all brews. Like recommended on the packing info.
