type: black

origin: india

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

Black tea from the famous Darjeeling region of India. This summer harvest tea comes to us from one of our favorites, Puttabong Estate. These tea gardens are some of the highest in the world, at 6000 feet above sea level. At these high altitudes, the tea leaves grow more slowly, and have more time to develop their unique Darjeeling flavor. This one has sweet, white grape or dessert wine fragrance, slightly earthy, and smooth, sweet-tangy flavor with a more gentle astringency than typical for these teas. Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      I'm not an expert about different types of teas, but I did enjoy this. I was concerned that the tea would be weak because if the light color, but it was very flavorful. On my second cup, I added a thin sliced of lemon.

      I was surprised by this one - pleasantly. When brewed correctly you really can taste the grape 🍇 notes, and it’s overall a smooth blend.

      I think this may be my first darjeeling. Judging by the other reviews, I may just not be a big fan of them, as this one seems to be a favorite.

      I've tried a wide variety of Darjeeling teas and this is in my top three. I don't skimp on the "heaping teaspoon" and brew mine right at 3:15-3:30 and it's excellent every time. It's a light tasting black tea, hints of fruity (not overpowering)

      I am a big Darjeeling fan and this one doesn't disappoint. The second brew is less astringent than the first but still wonderful.

      I was able to brew this one twice and it tasted wonderfully both times. It has a nice, light, fruity taste. I really enjoyed this.
