Another of my recent What-Cha order. I don’t believe I’ve had a Darjeeling yet, so I was interested to try one. This is a great morning cup!

The dry leaf is a Black, brown, and green, smallish. The brewed tea is a light amber color. The flavor is mild and smooth. With my lack of a sense of smell, I don’t taste much, but I can kind of get the hint of the spice taste at the end of the sip. I don’t know if this one is a representation of all Darjeelings, but I really like it. No bitterness, no astringency, but it isn’t a flat tasting tea. It has a definite flavor. Glad I ordered 50 grams of this instead of a 10 gram sample size.

Flavors: Smooth, Spicy

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

Castleton’s are well thought of Darjeelings. I’ll see if I have the 2nd flush of this tea to send you a bit… the differences can be amazing!

Thanks, Donkeytiara! If you do find it I’d be glad to try it. Is there something in my cupboard you might like a sample of?

Well this is my second 1st flush darjeeling, and they have both had very green leaves and quite a floral character, so I’m guessing that’s typical of 1st flush darjeelings? This is quite nice: light, smooth, no bitterness.

Flavors: Floral

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 g 8 OZ / 236 ML
