Description: The top standard of decaffeinated Darjeeling tea available, and by far the best we have cupped. Please note that even the best decaffeinated teas lack some of the flavor and complexity of their unprocessed counterparts.
Steeping Suggestions: - Leaf Quantity: 2¼ g/cup Water Temp: 212° (boiling) Steep Time: 4-5 min.
"This decaf premium Darjeeling is excellent--the only flaw is that it isn't organic!" KAB

"I thought this was a reasonably good tea, but sadly lacking in that delicate floral that makes darjeeling special. Not a bad cuppa, but lacking anything special and certainly not strongly flavored." Tea Analyst

Infused Leaf: Not my cup, Liquor: Good,
"Not as good as the TXD9 Decaf Assam. Darjeelings are big on aromatics, which you lose in a decaf. Steep only 90 seconds to avoid bitter flavors."
