From Rare Tea Republic

Cocoa, malty, dark amber
This well-crafted leaf is a testament to the expertise and precision of Glenburn’s master tea maker. This lot was custom made for Rare Tea Republic from the revered AV2 varietal, known for its sweet taste. A deep amber infusion produces rich notes of cocoa and malt for a very unique Second Flush tea.

Oh – ScottB you are a terrible influence on me for pointing out the Rare Tea Republic free shipping. :-P

Anyway I did get a few samples to try but nothing major. I have to say the dry leaf smells INCREDIBLE in the bag like luscious grapes! I decided to go with RtR’s steeping parameters which said 5 minutes at 205 degrees. I am definitely getting the cocoa notes here with a bit of malt. Definitely a grape element hanging out in my cup, as well as a woodsy one. There’s a hint of bitterness in the finish so I might try steeping at a lower temp next time around. I am more a fan of FF darjeelings, but this was very rich and tasty. I liked this!

Amy-I’ve been called worse ;) Glad you enjoyed.
Looks like I am going to miss out on the free shipping unless they get those new 2nd Flush Assams on their web site some time tomorrow.

This is pretty good. It is smooth and very sweet- highly drinkable. It is kind of malty, muscatel, and a bit musky. It isn’t a super-crisp and refreshing Darjeeling. I keep hoping to find another Darjeeling that will stand up to the super-spicy food that I like to eat. This is good, but this isn’t it.
