From Épices de Cru

Our Darjeeling Giddapahar exemplifies the uniqueness of black teas from its namesake town in the state of West Bengal, India.

Fresher and greener than autumn harvests or even Chinese black teas, it has a vegetal, citrus aroma combined with hints of brushwood and brown sugar. Its astringency and bitterness are kept under control, which adds to its balance, making it ideal for cooler days. A stimulating memory of spring

Adventaggedon Day Six – 5/5

We had company at the office today so my last few advent teas were consumed very quickly so I didn’t miss getting all my photos in before five. I wish I had gotten to spend more time really sitting with this mug and focusing on the flavour instead of speed slurping. Darjeeling is not a chugging kind of tea.

Dry leaf smelled really fragrant though with a nose that reminded me of walking into a florists right before Valentine’s Day. Steeped up, I got notes of sugar snap peas, just a hint of freshly zested lemon peel, and a lovely thick heady floral that was like fresh cut roses that still have a bit of that greener “chlorophyll” smell to the stems from being trimmed. This was a very evocative Darjeeling to me, and I look forward to revisiting the rest of the sample sometime when I’m less rushed.
