From DarjeelingTeaXpress

This fine Thurbo first flush is an excellent Oolong tea of the spring season. Its sweet aromatic flavour that oozes out right at the first sip of the cup is a clear indication of its strength. It leaves a sweet lingering taste in the mouth as it cools off. Technically classified by the garden as an Oolong (due to light oxidation), it has fresh and flavourful taste, nice mouth feel.

I am having a second cup of this tea, and I just went to go look at it on the DarjeelingTeaXpress website. I noticed they took my review from Steepster and posted it to their website without asking my permission and they gave themselves 5 stars! I consider this to be very rude and unethical behavior and am absolutely going to write them a note about it.

Roughage

Not impressed with them stealing your review. Hope they at least apologise.

TeaBrat

I’m not impressed either, they have absolutely lost me a customer

It’s very unfortunate considering I enjoy pretty much all of their teas. But, this is the second time I had to complain to them, I’d rather find a company that doesn’t treat me like this.

TeaBrat

what else did they do? :(

Peter Azak

I had a shipping issue in a previous order, they apologized, acknowledged the courier as the problem, and informed me they will be using a different courier service to ship next time.

When I made that next order, they used the same courier service, and the same shipping issue came up.

So I emailed them to complain, and forwarded them the very email they sent me telling me they would use a different courier service next time, I even advised on who best to use that doesn’t give any problems.

They apologized again, assured me they would remedy this, but didn’t.

I haven’t ordered any teas from them since, I guess this is the final nail in the coffin.

Invader Zim

I hope they apologize and either remove your review from their site or give credit to you.

Jillian

I hope you told them to take down the review.

TeaBrat

Thanks all. I emailed them to complain and they did apologize and offered me some extra reward points and said they would credit my name with a link to the original review. I told them I just wanted them to take the reviews down and it looks like they have done so.

CHAroma

Wow, I’m shocked. I can’t imagine someone doing that, but I’m glad they at least listened to you and took the review down.

The first thing that hit me when opening the bag was how sweet the leaves smell. It is accompanied by a slight fresh scent, but it is mainly sweet. The leaves are also curled and dark in color, with deep greens and greys and browns.

Steeping gives a similar sweetly scent, with a barely minty feel. The brew is a brilliantly bright and clean yellow.

The taste is also sweet, but also more fresh and green. It isn’t strong, more rounded flavor with no astringency.

This is a very deliciously sweet and bright tea. It isn’t a surprising tea or a particularly outstanding tea, but it is a delicious tea and one that will not disappoint for enjoyment.
