Brewed with the Western method. Steeping times: 3 minutes, 6 minutes.

Leaf: These leaves are greener and whiter than those of #1 and #2.
Aroma: I had a cold at the time, and my nose was very stuffed. No way I could try.
Liquor: Light gold in color. Medium-bodied. Somewhat thick texture. Notes of honeydew and papaya, with a mango aftertaste. Leaves a slightly dry mouth.

This tea smells green when you first add hot water, but settles down to a nice not-quite-black tea smell that is subtly floral.

Slightly vegetal and even a tiniest hint of smoke, this is definitely a different experience from the 2013 autumn. I don’t get very much sweetness, but the mouthfeel is still full and smooth. A tad drying though.

I plan on doing as mj did and drink the darjeelings in chronological order. First up – first flush. This tea was greener than I thought it would be. Smallish green and brown leaves. They really bloom up when they steep. The tea ends up being a deep yellow color. It’s a little vegetal and bitter. Reminds me of a mild green tea.

That’s how I did the darjeelings as well. I had a variety of first flush and second flush, but only a few of the third flush as I was kind of burned out by that point. It was definitely a fun way to do it.

As I added the water to the dry leaves, this beautiful green scent drifted up and teased my nose. The dry leaves were somewhat disappointing to look at, looking somewhat more brown, but still green. I dunno. The scent once I added the water has me hopeful.

A sip. Spinachy again, but much more muted than #5 was. I think I like this one better though, for some reason. It has something else about it, and my brain is stumped trying to come up with what it is. It’s quite tasty.

Yeah, that cup went way too fast. It’s really nice. I enjoyed it. I’m so happy for the chance to try all these different kinds of tea, and find something new I never thought I would enjoy. Stacy from Butiki Teas, this has been a wonderful opportunity. Thank you so much for doing this.

So glad that this has been a good opportunity for you to try a bunch of different kinds of tea! :)

It has been great! I’ve found a tea I would never have found that I like. Right now, I’m learning about the different greens that I haven’t had before. This is such a great opportunity. You could actually sell something like this. 2-3 servings each of a variety of different straight teas, with instructions and descriptions. There are places that have things like “green tea samplers” and whatnot, but I’ve never found that as helpful as I’m finding this.

Cheri-I’ve been thinking about doing this for our green and oolong teas to start. It does take a bit more work to make a sampler like that though. It took me hours to put that box together (though that also had to do with going through small packet samples. I think I might test out a green tea sampler and see how that goes. I was contemplating adding in individual biodegradable tea bags and also maybe keeping all of the samples in a tin so that we can pre-pack them and keep them fresh.
