From Harney & Sons

After the summer monsoon is over in September, the quality tea season restarts for about a month. These teas are done in the darker style of second flush rather than the greener brisk First Flush style. They are not as full bodied as Second Flush Darjeelings. In fact many can be inspid. This is the best Autumnal we have seen in years.
Dry Leaves Twisted dark brown leaves that are about 1/4 inch long.
Liquor Medium brown
Aroma Lovely muscatel fruit aromas
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body medium body
Flavors The fruity aromas come across in the brewed tea. It is a delight.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212º F

I really enjoyed this tea. very flavorful. no boiling temp for me because its quite drying at 205F. i find this tea delicious at 195F and 3 min Picked it up at SOHO shop. 2oz but now thinking that maybe i should pick some more. At a shop they give 5% discount frequent shopper. picking some amount is very convenient cause im hoarding tea
thank you James, you encouraged me to start writing notes

yay discounts!!


Sungma is just an amazing Darjeeling. If I lived near a Harney, I’d be in serious trouble… :)


I’m in trouble . I’ve been to Harney twice this week;)
I find excuses to get to city . The shop is so nice and absolutely no pressure from salespeople. Very laid back atmosphere


oh…. that’s lethal. no pressure is a sure fire way to convince me to browse and rack up more things to spend money on. (insert facepalm) pressure me and i’ll walk away with no apology….. the no pressure approach? i don’t even know it’s happened until my bank account is 100$ lighter. man. now i’m craving paris. sigh.

This was nice, a little weak so I think I’ll brew a little bit more next time. It had plenty of leaf.

I drank this earlier and enjoyed it very much. I didn’t take notes while I drank it though so I’ll have to do that next time. Thanks boychik!

Thanks goes out to boychik for sharing a large sample with me!

I had a bit of insomnia last night. The brain gets churning and all the relaxation techniques in the world sometimes just don’t do the trick. So, I did what I am not suppose to do when I can’t sleep, drank caffeine and watched the boob tube. I know, I should stick with caffine free warm drinks and I should do house chores instead, but oh well.

Boychik sent along so many Darjeeling to try. This is the first of many. This was very nice. It was medium bodied. The first part of the sip was sweet followed by a hint of fruit, and then a musky finish. This is only my second or third Darjeeling and I am not sure how to describe them yet. As I work my way through these Darjeeling I am interested to fully understand what taste profile defines a Darjeeling and what sets them apart. For now this was an enjoyable cup!
