Finally done with my sample tin of this. Although I have enjoyed it I don’t think I will be buying any more. I have noticed this is a nice one to steep at around 180 F, for around 2 minutes, that keeps the bitterness from rearing its’ ugly head and keeps the tea sweet and flowery. I got a few of the Upton first flush darjeeling samples to try – excited!

Not one I really ever wanted to try, but they do have some nice Darjeelings. :))

Well well, good afternoon folks!

Missy decided we were going to have a darjeeling face off today. We have a little bit left of this, TD28 Tindharia, and the Golden Moon darjeeling.

This particular darjeeling is a first/second/multi-estate super blend as far as I can tell. It’s like Captain Planet in tea form. Out of the three, it ends up being the lightest in color as well.

The flavor of this one is quite smooth, it’s very mellow with a slight fruitiness, I might consider it a peach flavor. It still feels distinctly darjeeling though, not just a nondescript black tea.

Overall, quite pleasant. I have some astringency right now, but as I’m sampling back and forth between three different teas… I don’t feel I can appropriately blame any of the three for sure.

Winner? I think this one, but only slightly better than Golden Moon. And I’d be lying if ‘availability’ didn’t come into play on this (I know I’m going to keep buying from Upton for other teas, so my Darjeeling might as well come from there, amiright?).

You can try steeping them at a slightly lower temp as well, I find that helps with the astringency factor. :)

Today I decided to compare the Darjeelings I have here. I have four. Three from Upton and one from Goldenmoon. I actually tried this one a week ago or so. Now I need to find the best of the lot.

Again this is soooooo yummy. This one is bright and coppery too but very smooth. The fruity notes I think I get with darjeelings are quite apparent this time, lots of peach. I can’t find the bite I normally get with black teas. I’ve had it for about 5 minutes with another cup and they are both gone! Sad face.

I thought this was pretty good too. ;)

I think this is a blend od FF & SF Darjeeling teas, right? Yes it is…….I was just checking my latest addition of the Upton Tea Quarterly-received today! :))

Not a bad price, not bad at all.

TeaBrat

I’m still waiting for my new Upton catalog!

ScottTeaMan

They sent me 2.

TeaBrat

No fair! :)

ScottTeaMan

I’m sure you’ll be reading yours in a couple days. :)) I wish they would only send me one.

Missy

Why, yes ScottTeaMan it is a blend. I really like it. I think it may be one that gets to stay in my cupboard, but I have to pass it through Dylan first.

I’m sad to see this one go. I love Darjeeling teas and this one is really hearty, like drinking warm squash-y smiles.

Goodbye, little smile! ::siiiiiiiip::

Warm squashy smiles? Haha, cute :)

Maybe someone will have to send you more Darjeeling…

Becky

It just makes me so happy. After trying a bunch of green/flavored teas (which I do like!), it’s still the naked dark teas that really get me.
