Darjeeling First Flush 2014 Kanchan View White Tea from What-Cha

Style: Darjeeling White Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

97 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
May. 6th, 2015

The aroma of the leaves is nothing short of bright and brisk! Like someone mixed up grapefruit peel, orange blossoms, wildflower honey, and lilies with a green broken vegetation undertone. It is really quite aromatic, and honestly kinda reminds me of my favorite soaps...not that this smells at all soapy, I just have a ...

Castleton Moonlight Darjeeling Black Tea First Flush from Golden Tips

Style: Darjeeling First Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 9th, 2015

The aroma of the dry leaves is, as expected, quite delicious to the nose, there is a strong muscatel presence, blending fresh juicy grapes and a hint of the more honey sweet raisins. Also fresh hay, a touch of peppery nasturtium leaves, and a bit of freshly crushed parsley at the finish giving the tea a neat herbaceous...

Darjeeling 1st Flush 2014 Gopaldhara SFTGFOP1 Black Tea from What-Cha

Style: Darjeeling First Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 17th, 2014

So, the aroma of this tea is so light and so sweet, it just kinda lays on my nose like a silken scarf. It is a blend of muscatel (specifically very fresh scuppernongs and muscadines) honey, wildflowers, and a tiny touch of pepper at the finish. It reminds me of nasturtiums and growing things and the more milder aspects...

Darjeeling 2nd Flush 2014 Jungpana AV2 Yellow Tea from What-Cha

Style: Yellow Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

97 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 10th, 2014

This tea's aroma is pleasantly transportive, not that I can really figure out where it takes my mind, but I can say it is somewhere deep in my memories and very comforting, it makes me wistful. Emotional impact aside, the notes are peppery, distant blooming flowers, sweet muscadines, and a tiny touch of sweet, warm hay...

Darjeeling Autumn Flush 2013 Jungpana Black Tea from What-Cha

Style: Darjeeling Autumnal Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 23rd, 2014

The aroma of the dry leaves is sweet and muscatel, it reminds me a little of white wine and scuppernongs, with a rich undertone of sweet potatoes and roasted peanuts. I think spending time in the South is having an effect on my nose, those are such Southern foods! Regardless of my nose's current influence, the smells i...

Organic Makaibari Darjeeling from Della Terra Teas

Style: Darjeeling Autumnal Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 29th, 2014

The aroma is sweet and muscatel, with a bit of a sharp leafy aroma, similar to that of grape leaves and oak wood. It is mild and pleasant, an enjoyable sniff that is reminiscent of nature and plants and a slight sweet finish of raisins.

The taste of this tea is deliciously mild and muscatel with notes of freshly mow...

Darjeeling (teabag) from Ahmad Tea

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

53 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 12th, 2013

The aroma is sweet, it is hard to describe it as anything other than that, it is sweet and very pleasant.

I am beginning to think I am not a fan of Darjeeling unless it is in a blend, because this is the second Darjeeling I have had and not been fond of.

The taste was tart, bitter and a little muddied. I am wil...
