From The Simple Leaf

The first thing we noticed with this tea was the abundance of colors in the tightly rolled leaves (in India, leaves rolled in this way are called BPS – Broken Pekoe Souchong). Firefly is from the Tumsong estate, situated at an altitude of about 4,500 feet in Darjeeling. When brewed, the liquor is a bright amber, and the aroma characteristically Darjeeling muscatel (reminiscent of the Muscat grape). Slightly nutty and fruity, it is also exceptionally smooth. The complex flavors come alive when enjoyed without any additives. Enjoy hot or iced.

I actually had this yesterday, but when I was steeping it, I completely forgot about and left it for a good twenty minutes. It was bitter, but the bitterness didn’t quite set it until it had cooled a bit.

Having it again today. Properly steeped this time.

I’d like to start by pointing out that I just recently came down with a cold, so my tastebuds may be off. I should be drinking smokey teas instead. That’d clear me right up.

It’s got the usual lighter flavour of the darjeeling. I’m finding it hard to discern much flavour, but I remember it being good and flavourful yesterday, and the bitterness again mixed in pleasantly to give it a walnut taste. However, no bitterness today it seems. But that might just be my tastebuds out of whack. My nose isn’t plugged up at least.

I’m not getting any fruity or wine notes. I am getting something akin to nuttyness but not quite (makes me think of Keemun). It’s enjoyable though. This’ only the second darjeeling I’ve ever tried, after Margaret’s Hope that Jillian sent me.

It got a bit bitter as it cooled down, but not in an unpleasant way. Just like how Margaret’s Hope did. Walnutty.

Walnutty tea sounds good!

Thanks for this MandyB!

This was Darjeeling-reminiscent! But I cannot tell you in which way! I just kind of reminded me of Darjeeling. It tasted like a green tea or a black and green blend tho. This was quite masculine to the nose…wait…that sounded funny…it didn’t smell like a MAN!!!! LOL But I think you know what I mean by that…

In the middle of the sip there was a slight fruitiness that came and went quickly and the beginning and end of the sip was more nutty. This was different and pretty good!

Another one from the “drink it up” pile. I didn’t go to bed til almost 2am and was up at 7, so I wanted something strong. I wish I had looked at the description of this before I picked it up. It’s a light Darjeeling, erring more on the floral and fruity side. Not what I’m in the mood for. This cup is more bitter than I expected it would be, and I’m not a Darjeeling fan anyway.
