From The Tea Smith

Darjeeling had improved weather conditions this year, and the 2nd flush is a real treat this year. Fresh from the fields, Castleton again has produced a fine sweet tea. The care taken to produce this tea is evident in the beautiful leaves and complete budsets throughout

When I pulled this up to read the description, I saw Darjeeling in big letters and missed the white tea in little letters. So my first sips surprised me some…typical Darjeeling this isn’t.

Of course it isn’t, silly … it’s a white tea, and a fine one at that. Held up well to nearly-boiling water and a 3:30 steep time. Nice satiny feel on the tongue. Light on the flavor, but then again, I was light on the leaf, not realizing what variety I was making.

My thanks to Azzrian for the sample. Enough in the packet to add a little leaf and give this a more informed tasting.

(We’re 2 for 2 on Tea Smith varieties. Further investigation pending.)

Dang this is GOOD! I mean REALLY good! I have never had a white darjeeling before but there are notes of grape, peach, honey, and a very flavorful white tea leaf here. I am HIGHLY impressed and thank goodness I got 2 ounces as I would totally be ordering more of this stuff right away!
Delightful!
Nice lingering after taste.
I am not a huge fan of white teas but this has won me over!

Never heard of white darjeeling. Interesting. What will they think of next?

White darjeeling ROCKS! I’ve only had a couple of them, but I’ve loved the ones that I’ve tried.

I’ve never tried white darjeeling before either…now I have the urge to buy some because of the first sentence of your review ;)

I’m sipping on a cup of this evening, it’s very soothing and calming. I’ve had a very busy, very frustrating day. My husband needed to go to the doctor, and the doctor would not address the issues that were bothering my husband, he wanted only to talk about other issues, and so tomorrow I will be spending my afternoon shopping for a new doctor. After the frustrating trip to the doctor, we ran over a metal spiky object that got lodged in our tire, which meant an hour at the tire shop. Not much went right today.

Anyway … now this tea seems to be making up for it, because it’s lovely. Sweet, beautiful, the lovely notes of a darjeeling but with the light, delicate qualities of a white tea … so wonderful.

This is a fantastic tea – it’s very gentle, floral and sweet, not exactly what I would expect from a Darjeeling but in very good way.
It tastes even better because I’m drinking it from my new cup: http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/product/home-glassware/26729111.jsp
(I have the blue and white one). I also have a small scone from a local bakery with my tea.
So good!

It is super cute and in real life looks even better than in the picture.
Thanks to this purchaseI have started my own collection of mismatched blue and white tea ware. I love the blue and white combo: Dutch, Japanese and Chinese, German, Russian, Swedish – I intend to collect all of that :)
