This tea is very clean, smooth, full-bodied, finishing only a touch astringent. Cocoa, malt and touches of caramel and autumn leaf push this toward being a rich brew but a brilliant tangy, fruity quality lightens it considerably. The two types of flavor balance each other almost perfectly. The fruitiness is complex and difficult to parse: red grapes, muscatel, red wine, pomegranate, raspberry, peach-orchard fruit. Those notes carry through into the aftertaste with additions of rose, incense and those green Indian chillies (mirch?).

Thank you Leafhopper for sharing :) It is aptly named, isn’t it?

It was second flush tea from the Jungpana estate that got me into Darjeeling teas in the late 90s prior to trying it I was Assam only and thought all Darjeeling teas were weak, flowery teas for little old ladies. This tea changed my perspective on Darjeeling the way WanGong teas changed my perspective on Yiwu

I’m a total noob with all flushes of Darjeeling. The few teabags I’d tried prior to buying loose leaf were very forward with muscatel and astringency.

I was a Darjeeling fanatic for a long time and I still love the flavor but no real Cha qi or huigan. Most of the flavors I loved in a good Darjeeling I also get from a young Yiwu. Some estates I can recommend are Makaibari, Singbulli, Liza Hill, Seeyok, Castleton, Goomtee and Tukdah to name a few. There used to be a couple eBay vendors, Aromas of Darjeeling and Tastes of Darjeeling that sold legit teas from India at 1/3 the price of domestic vendors. Regarding the flushes, the first are usually more floral and caffeinated while the second tend to be more robust and fruity. Every autumn Darjeeling I’ve had was boring.

I love the flowery, over-the-top names given to some Darjeelings (like Moonlight, Enigma, and Summer Punch), especially when the teas deserve them. I’ve enjoyed Lochan’s offerings from Jungpana in the past, so I have high expectations going into this tea. I steeped 4 g of leaf in a 355 ml mug at 195F for 5 and 8 minutes.

The dry aroma is of muscatel, pastry, chocolate, flowers, and grass. The first steep has notes of heavy muscatel, dates, raisins, pastries, butter, chocolate, rose, spring flowers, spices, wood, straw, earth, tannins, and grass. The chocolate aftertaste is pronounced. The second steep is less exciting, with autumn leaf pile, malt, muscatel, tannins, wood, straw, and earth.

This is a lovely second flush Darjeeling that is indeed a summer delight. I was advised to get 100 grams, and I’m glad I listened.

Did you break Steepster again? :P

LOL, I hope not! The reviews do seem to stop after I post, though.

So, it was YOU! :P

Yep, it looks like it was! I can’t access any of the tea pages.

You’re not alone. I’m trying to remove items from my cupboard and add new ones that I just received from a Canadian teafriend!!
