This is one of the teas I got as part of my tea club membership. It is from Marionbarie Tea Estate in Terai, West Bengal. It surprises me that no one else has written about it yet, and that I have not written about it yet, because I finished it yesterday. Sadly I cannot buy more because it is not available through their normal web shop.

It’s an odd tea. More than any other tea I have tried, the range of flavours you experience with this one vary depending upon the temperature. Canton Tea Co recommend trying it between 80 and 95 degrees, so I dutifully did so. At lower temperatures it has more of the Darjeeling about it, while at higher temperatures it is more like a black tea. I preferred it at the lower temperatures where I found it to be floral, slightly buttery, light and bright. Oversteeping was a problem as it rapidly became bitter if left too long. At higher temperatures it lost the lightness and was slightly bitter. I was not a fan of brewing it above 85 degrees.

Nice to see you around Roughage :-)

Roughage

Thank you. I do pop on but writing here a lot is proving rather difficult with my other writing and family burdens! :)

I know about this kind of issues myself Roughage… What’s good about this place is just that: you can come and go as you please, and your real friends are still there to greet you :-)

Everbody needs a TeaFairy!
