Commercial Description

...A delicate yet rounded black tea with intricate flowery notes. The tea brings about a subtle and sweet profile with hints of fine muscatel and an slightly earthy roundness. The lingering aftertaste brings in sensations of dark bold chocolate and cocoa...

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 wintergreen note and a hint of malt.

Upon brewing, the cup takes on a subdued quality reminding me of cool, clean stone in a forest. The cup has a strong cooling quality, more so than most autumn flush teas, which often seem more warming to me. There are interesting vegetal notes, and as the cup cools, the flavor and aroma of olive start to come out rather strongly. I like the initial aroma more than the olive notes.

I tried varying the amount of leaf and steeping time, and I found that brewing strength didn't make much of a difference in the character of this tea...it only made it subtly stronger or weaker.

Resteeps decently, only a second cup though, and not as interesting, a bit thin. Doesn't resteep quite as well as some Darjeelings.

I was surprised to see this tea was more expensive than the autumn flush from Jungpana, which I strongly preferred to this one. This tea is priced pretty high, even with the sale price, but it didn't seem quite up to the level of teas I would want to buy at this price.
