From Upton Tea Imports

One of the best teas produced in the 2011 season, and one of the best Darjeeling teas in recent memory. The well-made leaves are attractive and very bold. The quality of the liquor is exceptional, with muscatal notes and a velvety smooth character. The finish has a buttery nuance and light floral hints. Supplies are limited.

While not a fan of the trend away from the prolonged withering process that made second flush darjeelings distinct from first flush teas and created the deeper, richer, ripened fruit taste I like in older second flush teas, this offering from Upton (only samples left) is tremendous. The dry leaf is a beautiful mix of sienna and silver and the aroma is so fertile, fecund, and fruity it could be used in a sachet. The infused leaf smells like honeysuckle and the taste—a near first flush delicacy of flavor that leaves a pleasing honey-lemon aftertaste.

I had to look up a new word today (fecund)! Thanks for expanding my vocabulary. I purchased this one in July but it is yet unopened. I look forward to trying it!!

I’m using mine sparingly.
