From Upton Tea Imports

One of the top 2012 Darjeeling teas. The delicate, sweet cup has a fresh, complex flavor profile, with accents of tropical fruit and spice. A buttery smoothness lingers on the palate. A staff favorite. — From uptontea.com

my note says “a rather strongest sweet flavor”?
nothing is sure about this tea…, so waiting for the new ones opened. :-P

A good darjeeling is one of life’s great small pleasures. This one qualifies. It has a light coloring; almost like a white tea. The taste is similar to a white tea also; tasting lightly of Mediterranean fruits and spices with maybe the slightest hint of nutmeg. It would make a nice after dinner cup in the summer or the tropics.

Final analysis: Very drinkable.

Have been doing thunderdome rounds between 2 Uptons at a time. Drank this yesterday afternoon when Steepster was down, comparing it to Upton’s other Thurbo 1st flush. And I was doing a darjeeling-a-thon the whole day; later I also compared two Thurbo 2nd flushes and then moved on to the Margaret’s Hopes.

These are both very light and gentle, yet still with lots of beautiful, feminine, light-as-air flavor (bless darjeelings!). They both brew up a pretty burnt gold/blonde wood hue. Definitely would not drink either of these with milk or sugar.

This one’s rounder, smoother, somehow a bit richer and silkier. But I like the character of the other one better for whatever reason. More interesting somehow, and more aligned with my general tastes.
