I finally got around to opening my 2013 box of this tea. Still a cupboard staple for me. This seasons tea thus far is sweeter and warmer tasting than the previous year and a much less floral. Red fruits, and sweet red wine and sweet plum dominate the top notes with cocoa, and brown sugar notes rounding it off over light malt and slightly less biscuit than the 2012. Aftertaste is of brown sugar. Still really love the tea from this estate. I love that I can buy it locally. Maybe I’ll be able to try the pink box this year as well?

Edit to keep the cocoa and red fruits dominant keep the steeps shorter and use closer to a level TSP/225 ml rather than a heaping, and use a temp between 90-95*C.

Where do you pick this up?

You can find it at many Indian grocery stores. It can go quickly when it’s in. In Mississauga Dundas fruits and vegetables at Dundas and Hurontario almost always has it. Some years they get the pink box as well. In Toronto, I would check the stores on Gerard first. The packaging looks almost exactly like the picture. The tea comes wrapped directly from the estate and the month and year of harvest is stamped on the box.

YYZ sent this one my way and let me tell you, i am a FAN! this is how i want more darjeelings to taste. :) I’m not sure what previous years tasted like but this is not floral and doesn’t have that typical darjeeling taste that i tend not to enjoy all that much. i am going back to bed…sick is not a fun place to be and today i’m too exausted to be even out of bed..but it was nice to get in a couple cups of tea. especially such nice cups.

OMGsrsly

Get better, Sil!

So glad you like it! By teabox’s and the old Darjeeling expresses description of this tea this years flavour is probably more typical, than my previous box with it being sweeter with more chocolate notes. My previous box kind of reminded me of a mature deciduous forest with herbal and loam and green floral notes along with the fruit and cocoa. It tasted a little bit cooler and green, but still very good. It’s interesting how the Yunnan translates to the Darjeeling environment. The tea can get muscatel characteristics if you give it a long steep. I found them at about 5 min, but I love the warm, cocoa fruit mix of shorter steeps. Hope you got lots of rest today and are feeling better!

I’m really looking forward to trying the other teas you event my way. I’ve just been cautious this weekend as I’m not sure how impacted my taste buds are by being sick…..so far, though, they seem to be doing ok..
