From Steepster

Direct from one of the finest plantations in Darjeeling and grown from unique clonal plants, this second flush brews with a beautiful amber color and complex flavors of malt, fruit, and nuts. And don’t forget to wait for the lovely floral finish.

Overboard TTB #14

I’m definitely going to have to take a break from caffeine for a couple of hours after this one… I’ve not tried any of the Steepster Select teas before, most probably because I don’t need any more tea clubs right now.. I don’t drink a lot of darjeeling however this seemed to be an example of a pretty good one. It has some good malt and floral notes and the addition of milk brought a real creamy mouthfeel to each sip… Impressed!

Sip down!

From my Steepster select box! I drank this one at work yesterday. It was so slow because of the weather that I was waltzing around drinking it from a wine glass. Which, I have to say, is probably the best way to drink this, ‘champagne of teas’. I really liked the malty, dark berries and the smooth and rich mouthfeel. I haven’t had a Darjeeling in a while and it was a nice change of pace.

Flavors: Berries, Malt

Haha, glad to know I’m not the only one who has drank tea from a wine glass before! Sometimes the occasion (or the tea) just calls for it :)

Yes! I love drinking things out of fancy glasses :P I guess this explains my teaware collection….

I haven’t tried a lot of Darjeeling teas before and I wasn’t a big fan of the ones I sampled. But this one was really good! It’s strong and malty (my favorite flavor profile for a black tea) with a taste that reminds me of fresh-baked bread with honey. I didn’t notice any bitterness or astringency, but there was a slightly sour note to the aftertaste that I wasn’t a huge fan of. I’m going to try it with milk next time to see if that mellows it out. Still an enjoyable cup of tea to start my day. Thank you to Kyla for the sample!
