Tea #41 from Another Traveling Tea Box

Darjeeling and I just have not managed to become friends yet, but I keep trying to find one that I really enjoy and this one may be it. This had a much more gentle flavor that I currently associate with darjeelings, the last several I have tried have been a bit harsh and almost bitter. I suspect it may have been a much lower quality than this particular tea. I found this to be much more floral than I expected, it reminded me of some of the oolongs that I really enjoy.

Thanks for including this one in the TTB Dr Jim, this tea may just change my mind about darjeelings. I was giving up hope of finding one I enjoyed.

You might want to try brewing darjeelings lat lower temperatures. I have one that is quite astringent and lemony if brewed at boiling but has these lovely almond tones when brewed between 85-92*c. Lopchu is another one that can take the heat. But the, The estate grows mostly Yunnan varietal in a Darjeeling environment.

Thanks for the tip, I’ll make sure to try that.


If you’re looking for Darjeelings I’d be happy to give you an assortment to try! Good Darjeeling might top my tea list for favorites, so I always have quite a few. I can’t, unfortunately, put them in a tea box because you seem to always be before me, but I’d be fine sending a package your way.

Short Sorceress

That would be great, I appreciate that. I’ll go ahead and PM you my address. Let me know if there is something you want to swap for and I’ll toss it in the TTB. I’m going to send it to you either tomorrow or thursday.


I can switch order for you guys on the HH teabox! I’m sending you a message, since my messages never seem to stick. You should have told me moraiwe is always before Short Sorceress and I would have switched it. :D

Dr Jim

I’m becoming a real lover of Darjeelings. This tea is a first flush and they tend to be lighter and more floral than the second flushes. I have to admit I like a bit more oomph to my teas, and prefer the second flush, which works well since they tend to be a bit less expensive.

Tea #45 from Another Traveling Tea Box

Floral with lingering notes of apricot, with a clean finish. There is a little more astringency than I was expecting, and definitely leaves a dry mouth feeling.

If I were going to make this again, I might even lower my temperature further to the 180-185 range.

Tea #5 From Another TTB and fourth darjeeling sampled this morning

This first flush darjeeling has much of the flavor characteristics as Giddapahar Musk from Thunderbolt teas, but they are not as pronounced. Namely the sparkling (and astringent) characteristic. The liquor is in between the colors of the other 1st and 2nd flush darjeelings that I brewed thismorning.
