From Upton Tea Imports

This selection has a well-balanced, golden-amber cup with a heady muscatel aroma. The sweet cup has a refreshing pungency and buttery quality which linger pleasantly on the tongue.

It’s pretty good and the seller’s description is pretty spot on. This one has somewhat of a burly, malty character up front but finishes very nicely. There is a definite element of elegance as the flavors lift into a citrus coolness and lingers for a while leaving one feeling quite comfortable and satisfied. The balance of heaviness (relative to some other more delicate Darjeelings) and complexity of flavor is very nice.

Darjeelings are interesting for me in that the subtle differences between quality teas of different estates are enough to warrant a treasure hunt of sample sifting and research more so than any other type of tea. To me, they are the most like wines or single malts.

What’s not to like about a good darjeeling. This has some nice sweetness to the finish and is overall a really tasty tea.

This is a nice, gentle Darjeeling with a sweet finish and not too much astringency. I like it almost as much as I like Kenilworth, which is saying a lot!

Quite excellent with just a little sugar. Nice tannins, and good, robust darjeeling flavor. Be careful of oversteeping, though, as the muscatel flavor can become overpoweringly grapey.
