Yum, what a nice tea. Be sure to brew for just 3 minutes. It is very smooth, with hints of nuts and fruit, along with a good bit of sweetness. There's a little bite at the end to ground it. Very good tea

You need to treat this one as a green and only brew it for 2 minutes. I was not impressed with it hot, but as a cold-brewed tea in the fridge for 5 hours, it was lovely, with a full mouth feel and a somewhat nutty, malty flavor. Still, nothing distict about it and I won't get it again. I find many first flush Darjee...

Dear...God. Probably one of the best black teas I've ever had the pleasure to stick my tongue in. It embodies everything a Darjeeling should.

I never cease to be amazed by what comes out of Makaibari estate.

The dry brownish leaves with a few greener leaves mixed in turn noticeably greener upon brewing--most of them become the color of a green tea, with a few olive-colored ones mixed in. The cup is a deep golden hue, no darker than some green teas.

This is a pleasantly malty tea, mild without being too weak and strong without being too astringent. This is one of the few teas that can be served black or with cream and sugar without drastically weakening its flavor. This tea goes well with pastries or a light lunch.

For someone who does not enjoy first flush darjeeling teas, this was very impressive! On the company description it tells about a punchy astringency, but I did not find it in the brew, which is one of the attributes I loved! For a Darjeeling fan, I think it offers something new. For a person just delving into the world...

I tried this in a Peet's in the Philadelphia airport. I let it brew 2 minutes. Peet's said they normally include two teabags but I only used one and saved the other for later--and I'm glad because this tea would have been far too strong.

This is unusually strong for a Darjeeling, but this could just be due to a ge...

Jun. 26th, 2010

This tea is fully decent - I'd say it's better than what most of Twinings puts out. That said, it's not a great tea. The smell is blah. The tea tastes great at the first sip, but then lingers with a bit of cardboard. I think a little bit of lemon or mint would fix that though.

This tea smells simply luscious - it's scent has a mossy, earthy quality, with some fruity hints on top. It tastes lovely iced - it starts out with a deep flavor, and then has a sweet aftertaste that lingers a bit. Even though I used a good amount of tea to brew this, the flavor is still light.

this seems like a well-balanced 2nd flush darjeeling. i imagine that this is basically what an archetypical 2nd flush tea should be. some muskiness, nuttiness, bitterness, and astringency. no single element is really overwhelming.
good tea

the dry leaves have a chocolaty and nutty aroma.
the musky flavor and aroma does come out when brewed. a somewhat nutty flavor. a fairly well balanced second-flush darjeeling at a pretty good value. i drink this one regularly.

i am just your average tea drinker, not really a connoisseur, just a chick who loves tea. this is the only darjeeling i've ever tried, but i really loved it. i remember the first cup i ever drank, it was quite an experience. i was very impressed. the flavor was so... intricate, somehow.

The dry leaf is by far the fruitiest-smelling Assam that I have yet encountered...but upon brewing it's a little less fruity. This is a very strong tea...when brewed it's maltier than fruity, and has a fairly tannic aftertaste like Teavana describes. Bitter and somewhat astringent...I've had much smoother Assams.

Fruity, even for a Darjeeling, and mellow, except for some very strong objectionable qualities that emerge. There's a harshness in the aroma that I could do without...the aftertaste is also very tannic even though at first this tea tastes smooth. Astringent for a Darjeeling.

Disappointing. Definitely recognizable...

Aroma is rice-like, and very slightly malty, with a slight hint of smokiness, and somewhat fruity. Most of these qualities are very subtle. It's hard to say whether the aroma is balanced or muddled...it somehow straddles these two possibilities. I am not crazy about how the different aspects of the aroma blend toget...

This tea's complexity surprised me! Unusually vegetal for a black tea, with a hint of savory qualities. Dark in color, and full-bodied, but delicate. Fairly bitter, especially in the aftertaste...moderately tannic and astringent.

The aroma of this tea would place it on par with some of the better single-estate Da...

My favorite of the low priced Assam from special tea's. Very rich in flavor,though if you are a lover of malty Assam you will find this tea to be lacking a truly strong malty-ness. If you are like me then I suggest Yamamotoyama's orange pekoe.

Overall a good tea.
