From Camelia Sinensis

This organic garden returns this year with a lot consisting of several clones (or tea plant varieties) from different sections of the garden. Its liquor is rich and fruity, combining notes of spring fresh herbs and flowers, typical of AV2, with malty and spicy accents from the B157 and T78 cultivars. A tea suitable for any time or place, one to discover, or rediscover!

This one brews up a moderate and mellow cup, with nothing too attention-grabbing. It’s a quite fruity, with a seasoning of herbal grasses and spices (basil, thyme, parsley, etc.).

If Darjeeling tea is like wine, this is the one you have because someone, who probably mainly drinks beer, picked it up last minute for that light house party. It’s your low budget, “promotion without endorsement from any of the staff” wine, and it’s alright- just not amazing! It may pair well with a crockpot chicken though (cooking currently in progress).

This sample was generously provided by Camelia Sinensis and, if anything, it’s a reminder that I need to get back to exploring Darjeelings. I had some really intriguing samples a few years back, but this kind of tea is an acquired taste.

Freebie sample from one of the Camellia Sinensis orders I’ve placed this year; I think the most recent but honestly I’ve lost track a bit…

- Western; hot/straight
- Very noticeably/clearly astringent
- Not that it’s unpleasant/necessarily TOO much; just very ‘there’ throughout whole sip
- Kind of floral, but in a perfumey and relatively ‘forced’ way
- Rather than a fresh, delicate way like described
- Body is a little more mixed in flavour notes: malt, dry cinnamon chips, stale herbs?
- I know I’m not describing it in a super lovely way…
- But it’s actually not BAD; more so just really mediocre?
- It does hit pretty well all the aspects described by the company though…
- …just not in as positive a light!?

I don’t know… it’s meh.

I guess next time I’ll steep it for less time and see if that softens it in a positive way.

Another sample from Crowkettle this one reminds me more like a green tea than a darjeeling. this has a fruity and vegetal taste to it. Nothing that strikes me as being over the top amazing – ie would need to have this in my cupboard but it was a nice cup. :)
