This is my first tea tasting note and im glad to be starting since I have always loved tea but never new away to make it more of a hobby then just drinking it.The other day while at Happy Lucky’s Tea Shop in Fort Collins, I was eager to try a new green tea while having a pot of an Oolong called the Iron Goddess of Maiden (which is wonderful). One that wasn’t over bearing or to earthy. One of the employees suggested one of his favorites. Being the Glenburn Green Darjeeling. This tea is a wonderful light quenching green tea. Where it is not to earthy or over bearing. Wonderful after taste, which is not too strong. The light gold liquor is a delightful sight to the eye. Very soothing holds flavor through multiple steepings.

I met the proprietress of the Glenburn US distribution arm at the San Francisco International Tea Festival. I loved the Second Flush Darjeeling, and the prices were great, so I grabbed some of this green too, to try on a whim.

Appearance: very pretty dry leaves with some golden tips. The leaves are broken but still unfold nicely during the infusion. Liquor: light amber. Smell: mildly vegetal, with soft honey notes. The smell is light but pleasant. Taste: mildly vegetal with very subtle nutty notes. The flavor was consistent throughout cooling, and I was able to get 3 decent infusions. This is clearly a green tea, but it does not have a particularly assertive flavor (unlike a dragonwell or sencha, for example). This makes it well suited to general drinking throughout the day. Overall, I’m giving this a 8/10 (note – I started out giving this a 7/10, but have revised upward based on how consistent this is as a clear, nutty, afternoon tea).
