darjeeling (2 reviews)
price level: $$$$
High in the mountains, deep in the mists that surround the Himalayas is Darjeeling: "Queen of Teas". Our Darjeeling tea is a blend of First Flush and Autumnal teas from the best gardens. This mixture yields a light color in the cup - a fragrant "nose". A great value. Each tin contains 20 sachets. Our Darjeeling tea is Kosher and contains caffeine. Dry Leaves: Small green leaves can be found in this Darjeeling blend (hard withered green flakes) along with larger brown leaves. Liquor: This tea brews a light golden color. Aroma: A good mixture of the bright aromas of a First Flush Darjeeling: pineapple & grapefruit and the darker stone fruit notes of later season teas. Caffeine Level: Caffeinated Body: This is a medium bodied tea. Flavors: This tea delivers a good blend of bright citrus notes and darker notes of stone apricots and plums. Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes Brewing Temperature: 212° F
A good Darjeeling, true to it’s name. I have this in loose leaf instead of bags as shown, but it’s not listed loose. Same tea though.
