From Single Origin Teas

Jun Chiyabari, a neighbor to the famous Darjeeling tea province, offers truly excellent tea. Notes of maple and floral undertones of rose bring a unique touch. One of the smaller tea estates at around 123 acres, and one of the youngest – planted in 2002! – Jun Chiyabari offers a delicious tea that highlights how high altitude growing can bring out delightful flavors if processed correctly.

Produced in hand-rolled batches with an exemplary level of care, the leaves are nicely curled, and provide a prime example of how high quality tea is not limited to the Darjeeling gardens.

Sitting in a warm house while rain is causing some grassy spots to emerge beneath the snow cover. I’m practicing Christmas songs on guitar for church tomorrow, checking Steepster, and sipping a very pleasant tea. Feeling blessed.

My xmas gig season is starting to draw to a close. I’ve gotta see if I can find some scottish xmas tunes, for one of the xmas eve services I’m doing.

From a quick search you aren’t going to find any. If my search is correct Christmas Day was a normal working day in Scotland until the 1960s and even into the 1970s in some areas.

Backlog:

Although not technically a Darjeeling, it bears several striking resemblances to a Darjeeling. It still has that crisp, light flavor that Darjeeling is known for, and that sweet, wine-like quality.

Less muscatel than is typically found in a Darjeeling, though. A hint of lemon toward the finish.

Notes of rose! These surprised me. A sweet, autumnal taste that resembles maple.

A really, really good tea. I think that this was my favorite that I tried from Single Origin Teas thus far.

Thanks, Nicole Martin for this tea!

This starts off dark and vegetal, tasting very strongly of creamy green beans and earthy mushrooms. As it cools, it starts to taste fruitier and reminds me of putting apricots in red wine- still dark and earthy, but with a little bit of citric brightness peaking out.

additional notes: I’m also making a concerted effort to drink some of my oldest teas. Putting them in a focus/sipdown box and everything. The old tea for today was Single Origin’s Jun Chiyabari which I know ages VERY quickly so by this point just tastes like a really great second flush with nothing special about it. It was once so unique. But I don’t want to do a ton of notes about aged teas. It’s all my fault. So I will mostly be silently drinking old teas… notes will be about the new teas.

Courtney

I love how everyone is going this now!

Courtney

*doing — and we’ll cheer you on even silently getting sipdowns in. :)

Veronica

I loved this one. I wish I would’ve realized at the time how special it was.

Cameron B.

Yay, I love all of the sipdown efforts! ❤

Veronica – Single Origin still has this! Of course, can’t guarantee the harvest is similar…

tea-sipper

And thanks for the sipdown support Courtney & Cameron :D

derk

Aged tea notes are valuable. Write em if you want :)

tea-sipper

haha, ok derk. Maybe they WILL be valuable. But I don’t want to constantly be complaining about old tea flavor in tea that should not be that old. I don’t mean the stuff that SHOULD be aged.

A very nice tea. Much like a Darjeeling, but not as thick as I think of second flushes as being. It’s very light and mildly vegetal but with a bit of the dryness of Darjeeling in the background. I’ll have to try again and pay a bit more attention to steeping time. I think I did this about 3 1/2 minutes but it could have been longer. I was also cleaning the cat water fountain and may have gotten a bit distracted… :)

Thanks, James, for putting this in with my sample bag. It’s one I’d drink again. I’ll bet when I share this with my Darjeeling fan coworker, he’ll like it as well.

This tea is technically Jun Chiyabari – Organic. I don’t feel like adding another tea to the database. Purchased at the 2019 Midwest Tea festival.
I went through this tea quickly. I drank most of it at work. Solid black tea with no real distinct flavors that I remember. I wrote malt on the packaging? Sipdown

Flavors: Malt

The harvest I had of this ages ago was the most complex and amazing tea but you have to drink it SUPER fresh. It seems like yours should have still been fresh enough though.

This is a pretty tea with twisted leaves in a variety of dark chocolate and copper colors as well as some silvery buds.

I’ve gone through 3 steepings of this tonight which was probably a bit much but it’s a really solid tea. I probably should have took notes as I went along since I’ve been drinking it over the past four hours including all through dinner. From what I recall it was light with malty and floral notes. There’s also a bit of tannic dryness at the end.

As it brewed, I smelled that grapelike smell that I assume must be what Darjeeling afficionadoes call “muscatel.” However, I’m fairly new to Darjeelings and I rarely drink wine, so this is something I need to research a bit more.

The brewed tea is a golden brown colour slightly darker than amber, and very clear. Although this tea was picked in the summer, it reminds me of an autumn flush Darjeeling that I used to have. My understanding is that authentic Darjeelings have a second flush that’s characterized by strong fruit flavour and a bit of sparkle. This tea, in contrast, is more muted.

This was my breakfast tea for the morning, and it was pretty delicious. This has a similar resemblance to an autumn flush darjeeling. The dry leaves are large twisted knots ranging from dark brown gold to a mudded green. The flavor is very similar to darjeeling as well. It carries a crisp and light tone, but it has less muscatel. There is also a strong rose flavor throughout the brew. This was a wonderful tea to wake up with :)

Flavors: Floral, Rose, Smooth

kimquat sent this one my way and i was excited to receive it, as it’s been on my wishlist to try for a bit now. this reminds me of darjeelings, but without that muscatel flavour. Instead this is sweet, with a flavour that is reminescent of hay or something. I’m not getting floral notes like others have mentioned, and that’s A-OK with me :) This is a really nice cup – enjoying it while surveying the destruction that we’ve managed to do to the house lol

thanks for sharing this one kimquat!
