So I decided to make it a Darjeeling day! The dryleaf of this doesn’t smell quite as much like Oregano and herbs as Butiki, but it is extremely similar. The first smell I have of the liquor is eerily similar as well.

The taste of this is different from the Butiki’s Giddapahar Darjeeling Extra Special in two ways: 1) The coppery note is not as bright and I actually prefer it this way because then I don’t have that much of a pucker reaction. 2) There is no seaweed green tea quality, it’s much more like a black tea. Although I don’t miss the seaweed, I miss the creaminess of the Butiki tea.

In this one the two flavors combine better just because they are not as distinctive, which results in an apricot or citrus type taste when I taste them together. They don’t fight each other for dominance.

At one point I even thought the tea tasted like gummy peaches… but that could have been a momentary hallucination because I didn’t taste it anymore after that one sip. Maybe I just want gummy peaches and not darjeeling anymore. hmmm…

Yay for having a Darjeeling Day!

Yes! Well I at least made up my mind that I don’t like darjeeling- at least not in mass quantities!

This Darjeeling is positivly mellow! Its got a little bit of a coppery taste to it, and less of the greeny undertone that I have come to expect from a Darjeeling.
An excelent cup for this afternoon. I need caffine, and a good afternoon tea is just the ticket.
A million thanks to Fuzzy_Peachkin for providing me with the cutest little tin of this that you ever did see.
