From Upton Tea Imports

This broken First Flush Darjeeling produces a superior cup at a fraction of the cost of a full leaf style. The bright golden infusion has a pleasing pungency, as well as a refreshing minty nuance. One of the best Darjeeling values we have seen in recent years.

Wow, what is going on here? It’s a Darjeeling that thinks it’s a green? This selection from Thurbo Estate look nothing like the Darjeelings you’d expect from northern India. It’s broken very fine and has the hue of woodchips. The steeping time is a done-before-you-know it 1.5 minutes, faster than some green and white teas. The aroma? Smells sort of like a Chinese or Japanese tea to be quite honest. What does this all amount to? How does it taste? Quite good. A strong but quickly passing bitterness; it doesn’t linger. Good viscosity, like a syrup that’s been thinned out. The color is beautiful golden.
