Picture of Republic Darjeeling

Republic Darjeeling from Republic of Tea

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 6/10
Jul. 20th, 2016

I LOVE Darjeeling - and next to a jasmine green, a darjeeling is the PERFECT cup for me - especially in the AM. That said, Republic's loose version is a terrific value. Can't guarantee that it is first flush - but it is a very good value and I enjoy this one and have purchased it twice ($13 for a tin). Now comes in ...

Estate Darjeeling from Tea Forte

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5 Overall: 6/10

With Tea Forte you are paying for cutesy packaging - and these are terrific for gift giving - hostess gifts, bridal showers etc. The tea itself is usually good but not mind blowing and their "estate" darjeeling is good. Very nice, actually, and I am a BIG darjeeling fan (The first flush from Republic of tea is terrif...

Darjeeling Highlands (Teabags) from Harney and Sons

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 7/10
Dec. 10th, 2014

I like Harney & Sons and I like some of their Darjeeling (loose and bagged) and this one is no exception. Inexpensive (Moderately priced) and easy to brew in bag form. Relatively mild (benign) and can stand with a longer steeping time. I love Darjeeling so this is a good portable option.

Darjeeling (teabag) from Ahmad Tea

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 8/10
Jan. 6th, 2014

I really enjoyed this bagged version of Darjeeling - and I am a Darjeeling lover. This one is not nearly as bitter as some, and really fresh smelling and tasting for a bagged tea. Took a solid 3-4 minutes to steep - so give it some time and enjoy. I did add sweetener to it - but you certainly don't need to. Very tr...

I love, love, love Darjeeling - especially in the morning - and this bagged version from 2 Leaves and a bud is easy to drink on the way to the office. I love it - even if it is overpriced.

I love Darjeeling - and the "first flush" is expensive as heck. Adagio s a reliable source - but Republic of Tea also has a good one. (Loose only).Caffeinated and great in the morning.

Darjeeling Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

43 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 3/10
May. 4th, 2013

I love Darjeeling - and the good stuff (first flush) is pricey - so I tried a box of this (cheap!) but you get what you pay for. Very ordinary - but the bags make it portble and it's better than the Lipton swill my office provides.
