Tasters Review:

Sometimes I think most Darjeelings are darned-near the same..taste-wise.  At least the ones I have tried so far!  It’s not that I don’t like them…I do…but I haven’t really found one I LOVE yet. I mean really LOVE.  One that makes me say WOW.

So far…this just may be my FAVORITE…

Darjeeling Pussimbing Estate Reserve from Drink T is nutty but not like a peanut or almond. It’s bold but not astringent. It’s vibrant and energizing! It grabs my attention and is not your run of the mill Darjeeling! It’s also semi-sweet yet smooth!

Darjeeling Pussimbing Estate Reserve from Drink T has changed my thoughts on Darjeeling!  YUP!  It’s official…Darjeeling Pussimbing Estate Reserve from Drink T is my FAVORITE Darjeeling to date!

    To some extent what you say is true tastewise, but Darjeeling teas-esp FF Darjeelings-are one of my favorite types of tea, and taste can very significantly. Hey, we all have our Favorites right :). This review caught my eyes because my first loose leaf Darjeeling tea was a First Flush from the Pussimbing Garden-I think in 1998. I puchased ONLY a sample (I wish more), but it was fruity & FANTASTIC! I’ll never forget it and I’ll try to post a more in depth review on Steepster soon. This Estate Reserve looks and sounds like a 2nd flush. Thanks for the great review!! Steep on Bliss :).
