This is a lovely tea. It is light in color but has a full-bodied taste. But not too strong either – this is certainly no Breakfast Blend. There is no bitter tannins at all so milk is not needed. This was included in Upton Tea’s Premium Darjeeling sampler and I would definitely recommend this as a way to compare 1st flush and 2nd flush darjeelings. Of the teas included in the sampler, this was the best…

This tea is fascinating in the best possible way.

I’ve never had a tea from this estate before. To be honest, I hadn’t heard of this estate before. I’m baffled as to why because if all of its harvests are like this one, I’d think it would have tons of fans.

In the tin, it looks and smells different than other second flush Darjeelings. It doesn’t have that very sharp, high note, that I associate with second flush Darjeelings. It’s smoother than others. The same is true of the steeped tea’s aroma. No sharp notes, a smooth, mouth watering smell. It does have some grapey-winey notes but with the edges filed off. There is also a touch of honey, and wood bark.

The flavor is very much like the aroma. The tea is pretty astringent, and leaves a fresh, soft feel in the mouth.

It strikes me as more like a first flush in its smoothness, but without the water logged feeling I sometimes get after drinking first flush Darjeelings.

I’m not a Darjeeling connoisseur but for me, this is really the best of all worlds.
