From Silk Road Teas

Admittedly, we are not experts on Indian tea, but this tea tastes great. A rich and full–bodied blend of Darjeelings grown in the Himalayan foothills. This Darjeeling has a flowery aroma and delicate muscatel character and cups to a rich color.

As this is a second flush, the leaf is larger (than a first flush) and the taste rich and smooth. While there are some winey notes, the flavor is clean and will linger nicely. Our second-flush Darjeeling is grown at the Puttabong Estate, in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. This black leaf is grown in an area offering a very favorable environment for tea growing – a variable climate, high elevation and plenty of moisture in the soil. As a result, the leaf is strong and offers a very pleasant flavor. Enjoyed as a morning tea, with food, great for a meeting or afternoon tea.

Is this black tea exciting? Not really.

Is it appreciated by my Red Rose loving parents? Yes, it absolutely is.

This one might be perfect for casual black tea drinking when you don’t want to break into your fancier and frillier stash, as well as for guests who want tea but aren’t used to loose leaf or who think the title “Yunnan Pure Bud Golden Snail” is a bit intimidating to start.. Although, I find the Snail wins people over regardless of their prior concerns and biases (such an amazing tea; why is it not in stock and why am I on a tea buying hiatus?).

Flavors: Floral, Grapes, Hay, Malt

hahahha—I love your tasting notes. :)


Some teas are just like your black socks. Serviceable, dependable, goes with just about anything. (But the polka dotted ones are much more fun!)


I love your sock analogy. Also a timely reminder to buy more black socks! (Tea buying hiatus doesn’t mean sock buying hiatus :P)


One year, my husband invented the “Sock of the Month Club.” On the first of each month, I’d find a new pair of (dollar shop, usually) socks on the dresser. My favorites were the Hanukkah socks and the Frankenstein socks, which I cheerfully and rebelliously wear off-season most of the year.


That’s amazing. I generally wear my seasonal socks year round too. They are usually some of my coziest pairs!

Great everyday black tea. Full robust flavor with hints of grass. You can taste the climate in this tea.
