From Tea Emporium

A Super premium quality 1st flush Darjeeling tea plucked from the young clonal P312 and T4 clonal bushes of this premium tea garden of Darjeeling. The dry leafs are well withered and rolled and has a lot of small unbroken tips in it and is extremely wiry in appearance.
The dry leafs gives out a very delicious aroma of roasted nuts, slightly spicy and fruity aroma in this state.
When steeped for completely 4 minutes the cup gives out light yellow liquor. Each sip has multiple layers of exotic flavours which clearly reminds of roasted nuts, slightly lemony, spicy, a hint of freshly baked biscuits can also be felt at the end of each sip.

I didn’t even read the package and thought this was one of those black/white pu’erh cakes that people dislike… so I brewed this at 190 and it was mild and wonderful. I’m assuming from my own taste preferences that if I brewed this at 205 I would highly dislike it since Darjeeling and black teas in generally are not my thing.

However, this was really pleasant with the spice that came from the undertones.

I think I’ve heard before that darjeelings, especially first flush, tend to be more delicate than normal black teas and you should use cooler water. I tend to stay around 185 or cooler and have had much better results.

First flush is also milder than second flush. Leans a bit toward green tea.

Picked this tea up from Tea Emporium yesterday. I’m not a black tea lover but the lady there told me about this black tea and was sure I would like it because I like buttery teas. When I smelled it there was a lovely buttery scent. Leaves were pretty much like in the picture here- very light looking. I was mystified that this was called a black tea. The name on the package reads Thurbo Oriental Moon 2014 and she told me it was a first flush so I’m almost sure when I found this one on Steepster it’s the same.

It was very mild, light, and buttery for a black tea but still had elements that definitely made it black. I liked it so much I went for a second infusion which was still good. No , I don’t love it as much as my green teas but it’s a nice change and definitely a black tea I will enjoy occasionally .
