Jan. 13th, 2016

Every now and then I encounter a Darjeeling that only seems to shine when paired with the right foods, and this was one. The first couple times I drank it, it was easy to overlook, but when I paired it with a spicy coconut curry soup I made, it seemed to take on a completely different character.

Dry leaf is brown a...

Jan. 7th, 2016

This was a singular tea that was highly unlike any other teas I've tried. Minimalist in aesthetic, I can see this one appealing to people who like delicate white teas, and it tasted more like a white tea than other black teas. It's not my favorite sort of tea, but I found it intriguing with every sip, and drinking it...

Giddapahar Muscatel Darjeeling Black Tea Second Flush from Golden Tips

Feb. 17th, 2015

A very pleasant tea, quite dark for a Darjeeling, and with a pleasant astringency.

The dry leaf is dark and smells fruity, suggesting sweetness, and also very malty.

Brews up a dark cup, even for a second-flush Darjeeling. Aroma is strongly fruity. For having the name Muscatel though, this tea isn't among the t...

Feb. 11th, 2015

A unique tea, very different in aroma from any other Darjeeling second flush I've tried. Excellent, but I think I'd like it more if it were more bitter.

The dry leaf smells aromatic, fresh, and light, with herbaceous and spicy notes. It also looks strikingly beautiful--and fascinatingly, the color of the leaf, a m...

Arya Ruby, Darjeeling Black Tea, Second Flush 2014, Organic from Happy Earth Tea

Style: Darjeeling Second Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 9/10
Oct. 23rd, 2014

Arya Ruby offers a rich aroma of fermenting fruit—grapes, apples, apricots. The first taste of the liquor is smooth, slightly sweet, and seemingly little else. But then notes of tangy fruit and a slightly drying astringency begin to develop on the back of the tongue, which, it seems, signals the real development of f...

An excellent tea served in the cafe of the Hotel Altstadt-Engel Regensburg, Germany, with breakfast. Served in a glass teacup, which was nice because I could see the color as it was brewing.

A smooth, balanced Darjeeling. Light in color and character for a second flush, possibly even passing as 1st flush after bre...

Sep. 14th, 2014

I think this is an average to above-average, if a bit unmemorable, darjeeling.

Steeping the tea the traditional way using DAVIDsTEA's instructions gives a pretty bold mouthfeel. It is quite astringent, with good body, and little bitterness. The aroma is quite pleasant and very much like a darjeeling, earthy with s...

May. 1st, 2014

My first tea made gongfu style! This is milder than I expected and I was pleasantly surprised.

I steeped for 30 seconds to start. The tea was a very pale amber. The flavor was very light, and slightly sweet.

I did another steep of 30 seconds and the tea darkened slightly. I didn't notice much difference in t...

Nov. 22nd, 2013

A classic and high-quality example of second flush. This was my first introduction to Waterfall teas, and it makes me eager to try more of this company's teas and see where they go!

This is the first pyramid sachet that I thought surpassed Two Leaves and a Bud's Darjeeling in quality. It is a notch more expensive ...

OK. This is tough. I wanted to write a review and provide ratings that would be fair and encouraging to other readers, but I'm conflicted due to my own taste bud preferences. My very first experience with a 2nd Flush Darjeeling was a Taylors of Harrogate, which I liked, due to it's malty, full-bodied, and high 'glow' a...

This tea is interesting. It tastes a little watery, but it has a kind of strong flavor. I'm not quite sure how to describe it. I added cream and sugar.

Jan. 3rd, 2013

I always get excited about Makaibari estate and I have not yet been disappointed. This was among one of the smoothest, creamiest teas I've tried from them. It has less bite than the first flush.

Aroma of the dry leaf is suggestive of monsoon/rains teas.

Upon brewing, the aroma becomes much more complex.

Color me spoiled, addicted, imprinted like a baby duck. This was the first single estate Darjeeling I ever sampled and nothing else has ever come close to the golden Muscatel notes (the very apotheosis of the trait), and summery, so-second-flush hints of dark dried fruits, nuts and spice with just the right touch of wo...

The dry leaf of this tea has the greenest color of any second flush Darjeeling I've ever seen. When brewed, the result is rather oolong-like.

Color is a light amber, lighter than most 2nd Flush Darjeeling. Very clean, crisp, mouthfeel, with considerable sweetness. Slightly edgy and tangy but with little astringen...

This tea has a distinct peachy flavor that I think I've tastes in other Darjeeling teas, and I don't like that flavor in teas. It has a little bitter aftertaste, which I don't like either, and it doesn't have a very strong black tea flavor that I usually like in strong black teas. It has a nice, interesting aroma, thou...

A dark, smooth, full-bodied tea with a highly vegetal character and a pleasing, wintergreen quality.

Fairly complex...much less of the typical fruity tones characteristic of Darjeeling. Instead, there are biscuity-tones. Rare Tea Republic describes the aroma as "jam and sap" and I think this was a good description...

This is indeed a darjeeling second flush but its not muscatel all darjeeling second flush are not Muscatel. Only Makaibari has a house patent of Muscatel flavour. Indeed this tea has all characters of a 2nd flush, but not a muscatel.

Muscatel taste in Tea is only represented by Makaibari Tea Estate, a lot of Tea estates and company have wrong connotation about Muscatel and they claim as their own. Muscatel taste is generated only in Second Flush Darjeeling Tea, all second flush doesnot represent the Muscatel. The word Muscatel in terms of tea is th...

Like the Singbulli, I prefer brewing this tea for 5 minutes, as recommended. However, I also experimented...
