From Vahdam Teas

An ecstatic brew & among the best Darjeeling green teas this season. Harvested from closely guarded delicate clones at the mysteriously beautiful Arya tea plantation, this organic brew offers a splendid floral aroma with a distinguished unique flavour. The extravagant leaves offer a whiff of sweet flowers which prepare a bright dazzling cup. A real jewel amongst green teas.

Setup in 1885, The Arya tea plantation in Darjeeling is situated at an average height of 1500 metres above sea level. This very prominent tea estate is known to produce some of the finest organic teas grown in Darjeeling. Its ‘Jewels Tea Collection’ known as the Ruby Black Tea, Pearl White Tea, Topaz Oolong Tea, Emerald Green Tea & Diamond Black Tea etc. is extremely popular among connoisseurs. This estate produces up to 70,000 kilograms of tea every year & its exclusive offerings command a premium every season.

Well, I don’t think you’re going to get any better than this. This is easily the most complex green tea I’ve had, with layers and layers of flavor that were an absolute treat. It has the highlights of green tea, high-mountain oolong, and young sheng pu’erh all in one cup.

My notes for this tea are a total mess because this thing just kept transforming and becoming more nuanced literally with EVERY SIP. There were vegetal and herbal notes of green tea, spice and fruit notes of oolong, and complex sweetness and menthol of young sheng. This thing knocked me back in my chair as I sat realizing that I was in the presence of tea greatness.

At $28 for 100g, this is still more than what I (like to) spend on tea, but I am confident in saying that this tea is worth its price. It is an absolute treat, and would be a fantastic gift for any green-tea loving friends. Or really any tea-loving friends, for that matter.

Smell: complex. Fresh parsley, snow peas, coriander, and chestnut, with secondary notes of honey-lemon, bergamot, buttered yeast roll, and coconut.

Taste: fresh parsley, snow peas, chestnut, coriander. Notes of Mexican chocolate, black forest cake, and buttered yeast roll. Other notes of coriander seed, honey, tropical fruit (guava, coconut). Finish has mint and menthol with chocolately sweetness.
