From Upton Tea Imports

This 2018 first flush Darjeeling blend has a sweet aroma, hinting of honey and flowers. Those classic hints spill over into the golden amber cup, complementing the silky smooth mouth feel. The finish lingers on a clean, crisp note. A great value.

To all those keeping an eye on their mailboxes for their untracked free shipping Bird & Blend packages (I know I didn’t want my package sitting in the hot mailbox)…. I got mine today. And I ordered pretty early in the sale.

Thanks so much, SkySamurai! First flush Darj is usually hard for me to describe. This one tasted like creamed corn though, which is what I taste with some green teas and not really any Darjeelings, so that’s different. The second steep was a completely different from the first cup. The second cup was a bit oversteeped but Darjeeling is fickle. I should have taken note of the flavor that was like a green tea and steeped it like a green tea. Next time.
Steep #1 // 1 heaping teaspoon for a full mug // 25 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 10 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep

Ooh. I’ll be on the lookout for mine! Thought maybe it was delivered today, but apparently it was something else outside that intrigued the cat.
