From Grace Tea Company

From the high Himalayas of North India, Darjeeling tea is grown more than 6,000 feet above sea level, where a cooler temperature promotes slow plant growth. This altitude gives the smaller leaves greater flavor and aroma. Tea of this quality is hand-picked once a year from the early summer flush, so supply is always limited. Our selection hints of delicate fruit overtones with each sip. We’re sure those who enjoy a superior Darjeeling will find the stimulating taste, bright color and rich body of this tea a true delight.

We accomplished another sample sip down at tea party time today! Middle daughter made chocolate chip cookies with freshly ground hard red wheat. This was the second tea served. It is my second or third favorite Darjeeling, though I am not yet a Darjeeling connoisseur. It is smooth and fruity and doesn’t have as much astringent bite as some. This was actually the favorite tea of my guest today.

Grace Rare Tea does not offer a great variety of teas, but what they have is excellent. That was their mission.

Wow! This tea is full of surprises. I was first surprised to notice a hint of cocoa in the aroma. I noticed some familiar Darjeeling-esque tones in the fragrance: woody, earthy … but there, in the distance, is also a distinct cocoa-ish note. Intriguing!

I wondered … as I impatiently waited for this tea to brew … if the cocoa notes would be discernible in the flavor. And they are, although they are rather subtle. The flavors build and develop as I sip it. It starts out as a light, almost sparkling taste on the tongue with its notes of fruit (even a hint of muscatel) and wood … and just a whisper of dark chocolate-y notes in the background. As I continue to sip, the flavor develops and the body changes from a light-to-medium bodied tea, to a medium-bodied tea, to an almost full-bodied tea.

A very unique and pleasant Darjeeling.

This is a great company. I love the label on their tins and I love the teas I have had from them. I have a gift certificate for A Southern Season, and I think I will use it to try their Jasmine. I have Winey Keemun, which everyone LOVES, Formosa oolong, and Oure Assam. I haven’t tried this one.

This has a slight hint of cocoa powder smell…ahhhh!
This is a mellower tea and quite creamy! VERY soothing! Thumbs up!
