Darjeeling Avongrove from Camellia Sinensis

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  White Darjeeling

Where to Buy:  Camellia Sinensis

Product Description:

This white tea is very unusual combination of Darjeeling terroir, pure assamica tea, and the artisanal expertise of Avongrove’s Mr.Subba. Large silken buds give a relatively dark infusion and liquor due to the assamica’s chemistry. Rich and creamy in the cup with a smooth, full attack of cocoa butter and hazelnut notes that linger into a long pleasant aftertaste.

Taster’s Review:

Ahhh-Maz-ING!  This is an astounding white Darjeeling.

The tea brews quite dark for a white tea – and when I first saw the brewed liquor I was a little worried that I had used too much leaf or infused too long.  But, after tasting it (and reading the above description) I realize that this tea is meant to be this dark.  The aroma of the liquor is quite delightful – I can smell notes of chocolate!  YUM!

The flavor is quite surprising.  Normally with a white tea, you might expect the flavor to be delicate, but that is not the case here.  This is one of the strongest white teas that I think I’ve ever tasted.  The flavor is smooth and rich and quite delicious.  Sweet, nutty, and even a hint of cocoa in there.  Very flavorful and very enjoyable.

I would recommend this tea to anyone who might think they don’t really care for white tea because it is too delicate – this one will shock them!  This may just be my favorite white tea yet!  I love it.
