Interesting. This doesn’t SMELL like a Darjeeling.
It already intrigues me!

A solid black tea aroma with fruity and floral suggestions! I’m still interested!

The ‘brews’ dark brown with a orange-red hue!

It doesn’t taste like the stereotypical Darjeeling, either. It’s bolder and darker than the other Darjeelings I have tried…it doesn’t have that crispy-airiness or sweet-wood to it. This is more outspoken and malty, even. There are amazing wine-like comparisons I am picking up, too! It must be the grape-esque notes the product description mentions. I REALLY like that about this tea! In the aftertaste I can taste the ‘mentions’ of florally goodness! My favorites parts, tho, are the medium-strong-body with fruity/wine-like natural flavors.

The more I drink this – the more I am shocked and amazed by it. How very different it is from ANY OTHER DARJEELING I have EVER tried! For THAT…I score it HIGH and savor the moments with this tea.


Oh! This COLD – I can taste that bit of Darjeeling – when it’s cold! SURPRISE!!!!!!


Oooo another winner I have to try!

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this Darjeeling.

A really interesting Darjeeling in that it has a more substantial body than I normally would associate with a Darjeeling. This tea has some substance to it. It’s a heartier Darjeeling (and hearty isn’t usually a word I’d use to describe Darjeeling, you know?) It’s not as bold as say, an Assam, but it’s not as light and crisp as a typical Darjeeling.

There is a nice fruity tone to this, and even notes of Muscatel. I noticed more muscatel notes in the dry leaf aroma than I do in the brewed tea. It’s sweet, with earthy tones and a strong floral quality to it.

A very unique 2nd Flush Darjeeling, nice … but I find myself wanting a little less floral and a little more muscatel from a 2nd Flush … but I do like this for what it is. It’s different!
