67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 22nd, 2015

One of the most atypical Darjeeling teas, tasting more to me like a white tea than a black, I found this was interesting, but not for me. I was disappointed in it for many of the same reasons I tend not to like silver needle white tea.

I've tried this same tea from a different seller, Happy Earth Tea, the 2014 harv...

Giddapahar Muscatel Darjeeling Black Tea Second Flush from Golden Tips

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
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...

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
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...

Feb. 10th, 2015

This second-flush Darjeeling was very different from the other one from Jungpana estate, that I just tried from this same company. I prepared them the same ways. I didn't like this tea as much, but it was still good.

The dry leaf is not quite as intensely aromatic, but has a fascinating aroma with a fleeting winte...

Feb. 10th, 2015

Excellent! Probably the maltiest Darjeeling tea I've ever tried, yet smoother and without the tannic edge of an Assam. Otherwise, typical for an autumnal flush.

Dry leaf has a rich, caramelly aroma, fruit, malty for a Darjeeling, and suggesting sweetness.

Upon brewing produces a cup with a rich fruity aroma, so...

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...

Dec. 31st, 2014

A very light first flush Darjeeling with a unique character.

A present brought back from Germany, does not look like it's available in the U.S. I found this tea fascinating, as it's an example of a "holiday-themed" tea that is a single-estate pure tea of a high grade, and I normally associate "holiday teas" with fl...

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...

Dec. 11th, 2014

Quite a nice Darjeeling. It isn't as complex or raisin-like as some others, but it certainly fits in with the better-than-most-black-teas-by-a-lot crowd. Like other Darjeelings, it strikes me as a better version of Southern tea than actual Southern teas. For me, this makes an excellent everyday drinking tea. Not only i...

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...

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
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.

Served with breakfast at the Hotel Alt-Görlitz in Görlitz, Germany, an exquisite breakfast, I might add, and this top-notch tea was an excellent addition to it, on par with the rest of the food served there.

A high-quality sachet, filled with large pieces of relatively high-grade tea. Aroma is strongly fruity, of...

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 26th, 2014

Served with breakfast at City Herberge, Dresden. A middle-of-the-road Darjeeling tea bag, not very complex, but recognizable as a Darjeeling, and a couple steps up from a typical black tea (definitely far ahead of Meßmer's regular black tea (Klassik), which did not impress me.

Light-bodied for a black tea, dark am...

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
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...

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...

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...

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.

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 2nd, 2014

This tea brewed an amber colored liquor and immediately gave off a strong punch of apricots, trailed by a musky honey scent. The first taste—still too hot—yielded an indistinct malt-floral taste. Later after allowing to cool further, the liquor still seemed mild and subdued, and so with a third sip, I vigorously ae...

Oct. 1st, 2014

This was a very light brew with a bright golden color, and it smelled immediately of mint and other subtle floral and green fragrances. The sense of mint carried into the taste and mouthfeel, and it was never earthy or grassy. Later in the cup, I noticed a bit of the scent of asparagus. It was a really soft, beautiful ...

If I didn't know better, I'd have thought this was a chamomile, not a Darjeeling. The mint was fine, if you like mint, but overall I just wasn't impressed.

Very smooth, fresh tea. I definitely like the lighter, non-bitter taste of Darjeelings compared against regular black teas. The first cup of this one was particularly good, while the second one was slightly weaker in flavor. Still, I enjoyed the very lightly floral taste, which contributed a pleasant complexity to the ...

Sep. 17th, 2014

Despite leaving the leaves to brew a little longer than I originally intended (meant to brew for 3 minutes, but ended up closer to 5), this is a very smooth tea. I brewed it at 180 °F. This would make a very good general purpose, share it with friends sort of tea. There's no bitterness, I like the almost-floral aroma,...

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
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...
