This was a good Darjeeling. Subtly flavored with no bitterness. I thought this was a high quality tea for being bagged. The price was typical for a cafe, I've heard that boxes of this tea can be pricey.

This tea took me back to summers spent sitting out at my parent's house on the deck... I've never experienced a tea smelling so summery and think it was because of its lemon and flower tones. I really could have spent most of my night holding the cup in my hand and taking occasional wiffs! Mmm... smells are one of my...

I thought this tea was really good, it was definitely higher quality than most Darjeelings I've had. The description fits it to a 'T' minus the malty taste -- mellow and sweet. I liked it overall and thought it was much better than other teas I've had... while I didn't have an initial "wow" moment because of personal ...

Makaibari Estate Green Tea from Arbor Teas

Style: Green Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 26th, 2013

I wasn't impressed with this tea and found it quite bitter, which was a bit disappointing since I like so many other teas by Arbor Teas! I don't have any complaints about their pricing or the scent of the tea, which was average, but I didn't like the taste at all. After finding the flavor to be too sour and strong on...

Darjeeling Tea from Frontier

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5

I really enjoyed the smell of the dry leaf of this tea, although any aroma was lost after brewing. I thought the flavor was good and I didn't think it was as bitter as other brands I've had, such as Two Leaves and A Bud. I'm also a big fan of this tea being organic and fair trade.

Singbulli Darjeeling DJ41 from Harney and Sons

Style: Darjeeling First Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5

While I believe this tea to be slightly overpriced, I was impressed by how strong the tea was based off of the amount of leaf used. For the amount spent on a small box it's possible to brew a good amount of tea, so you get more for you dollar.

Darjeeling from Two Leaves Tea

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 17th, 2012

I initially liked the flavor of this tea, but the longer I sipped it the less I found it appealing. After brewing it for about 3 minutes I found that it had a sweet taste and was light when I began drinking it. As time passed and I continued drinking it, the flavor became more and more bitter and left a heavy taste ...
