From Mariage Frères

« Himalayan Mists », created specially for Mariage Frères , is a highly prestigious black tea produced on the renowned Ambootia Estate in the misty mountains of Darjeeling. Like white teas, it is composed solely of silvery buds.

The extremely selective plucking occurs only in the coolness of an evening under a rising moon.

A delicate withering happens during the night; then the leaves are gently rolled at dawn (each bud having already been wrapped in a larger leaf for protection). The young, downy leaves produce a golden liquor tasting of hazelnut and muscatel, with a unique, unforgettable floral aroma.

How to prepare this Darjeeling Second Flush:

Measure out 2.5 g of tea for 20 cl of pure, filtered water.

Bring the water to a simmer (about 95° C) and let the tea infuse for 5 minutes.

This is one of the Darjeelings that I am trying to sipdown because it is getting old. I ordered this just about a year ago now. This morning I am having it after my favorite breakfast: tofu scramble + potatoes + hot sauce + lots of nutritional yeast. Anyway, this tea has a real peppery aftertaste today which I am actually rather liking.

i’ve recently ordered and am drinking 2012FF Vintage Castleton Darjeeling. Even after two years from the time of picking, it still tastes great. Debating on whether to try some of the specialty Darjeelings they have recently posted on their website.

Happy Steeping

Those are on my wish list too. Which are you most wanting to try? I’ve been especially curious to try the Darjeeling Beauty. Have you ever had/heard of a tea like it?

Excelsior

They all sound interesting. When their full line of 2014FF Darjeelings come in, I might try their special line if they are still available at that time. Right now, I’m still enjoying the Vintage Castleton and the High Mountain Oolong teas from Taiwan Tea Crafts. I still need to allocate some time to write a review on their wonderful Da Yu Ling.

Excelsior

The problem is, if I like their specialty teas, then it will substantially impact my tea budget. What’s worse, if my wife likes it, then she will constantly ask me to buy more. I can’t fault her for taste though. She has Japanese tea ceremony crudentials/certifications and she buys some incredible Japanese Greens. I went with her to her friends house and her friend is an instructor for Tea Ceremony. She served some Matcha that was the best I’ve ever tasted.

CharlotteZero

That’s very cool that your wife has studied/practiced the Japanese tea ceremony, and that you have friends who also love tea and tea culture. My boyfriend is a really good enabler when it comes to my tea budget, even though he is more into beer than tea. I’m still a Matcha (and tea, if I’m being honest) newbie, and I’m not sure if I would even be able to imagine what a really good Matcha would taste like.

The tea leaves in 2010 have forcibleness and delicacy.
The tea leaves in 2011 are very delicate.
