This is a very very very fine Darjeeling from the tea stall at London’s Borough Market, Tea2You, which is a one-man show for tea with a webstore (www.tea2you.co.uk). There are only about six to ten kinds of tea for sale at any point but they are all top-notch. He’ll ship to the US free for orders over 13 quid (hear that, Ahmad’s? Only £13!), so even though I don’t live in London anymore I can still afford one of my favorite weekend treats on a Tuesday in California.
Anyway, the tea! This Darjeeling brews up amber and smells of honey in the cup. It has a rich mouthfeel and the taste is also reminiscent of honey with wood. Very easy drinking, I never put sugar or milk in this one. Delicious. Also good for a 2nd steep, takes 8-9 mins. At £4.95 for 50g of tea, price is comparable to other luxury brands. Highly recommended!
