I’ve been wanting to try this for a bit but having so much tea doesn’t make that easy. So finally, I have a cup, yay.

This is okay, I’d rather have a second flush Darjeeling. This tastes a bit like one, but a bit more nuanced in flavors. It seems more fruity than the other ones I’ve sampled from Upton, but at the same time it doesn’t have the same bolder flavors I like in those.

It seems like the main difference is the astringency is very muted, at least in the first steep. I don’t like it enough to steep it again, I think. My mouth just hurts because I went to the dentist and got prodded all over the gums. Did you know it is possible to have a very strong lower lip muscle? Apparently I don’t suck at brushing my lower front teeth, it’s my lip being a jerk and pushing the toothbrush up.

And now hopefully this posts since when I look at Steepster and don’t want to post a note, it works just fine. When I want to post this, it’s taken forever.

I love the Tindharia Estate, but for some reason, I seem to pass on Darjeeling Oolongs, although I Have had a couple that were good.

I have the second flush on my wish list on Upton because of this one, as if that wishlist wasn’t long enough already!

I have had some good FF’s and 2nds from this estate. Which 2nd Flush is on your list?

momo

I shouldn’t have woken up so early, I meant to say every single second flush one on Upton is on the list haha. They are all $1-$1.50 for the sample size so they all got added, of course.

I need to focus on more samples. I tend to find teas I like & buy more quantity, and I’m sure I miss out on some really good samples. :-//

I’m kinda torn on this tea.

Both the dry leaf and the brew seriously lack in the aroma department. I can catch very light Darjeeling notes but they are hardly prominent. Also the leaf is very fluffy and I have to use a lot of it to extract the flavor.

On the other hand the tea tastes great. It is very pleasant and easy to drink, it would make a perfect everyday tea. The flavor is very mellow and light, fruity with Darjeeling background. I’m not sure if it’s close to the first flush or the second, if i had to make a call I’d say it’s something in-between.

Second infusion – 5 mins @ 190F. Less enjoyable. The initial sweetness is gone and the flavor is definitely drier and more astringent now.
