Commercial Description

A rare first flush oolong tea from the Darjeeling region of India. While it is fairly uncommon for an Indian garden to produce anything other than black tea, the growers at the Gopaldhara estate have produced this exquisite exception. Steeped in a quality that rivals its Taiwanese and Chinese competitors, our Ooooh Darjeeling is sure to produce both 'ooohs' and 'aaahs.'

A lifelong fan of traditional black Darjeelings, I was intrigued by the idea of a Darjeeling oolong. Directions called for steeping 2 heaping teaspoons per cup, 212F/100C, 3-4 minutes. I went with 4 level teaspoons (3 grams) per 8 fluid ounces, 212F/100C, 4 minutes. I liked the fruity-floral flavor and expect that fans of traditional oolongs might enjoy it even more than I did. I rarely drink oolongs but think it would be fun to try this unusual tea next to traditional oolongs. At more than twice the price of one of their traditional black Darjeelings that I like a lot, this is probably not one I'll be purchasing on a regular basis.

The scent of the leaves is delicate to me– slightly sweet and earthy, but I didn’t really taste either of these once brewed. Ooooh Darjeeling is unlike any oolong tea I’ve had. It doesn’t have that earthy aroma like most oolong teas I have tried. Instead, it tasted more like a black tea but not as strong and without much of the astringency (Before I read about this tea, I actually jumped to the conclusion that I was drinking black tea and not oolong). Ooooh Darjeeling had a subtle floral aroma that I found to be delightful. I think there was supposed to be some fruity aromas as well, but I did not pick up on those.

This tea tastes great both unsweetened and sweet. While I haven’t tried it, I think Ooooh Darjeeling would make a nice iced tea if rock sugar were added (or whatever your sweetener of choice is).
