Fikkal Ilam Estate SFTGFOP1 Tippy (FKL-30)

This wonderful, everyday selection is a great alternative to the pricier Darjeeling teas. The pale golden cup has a light vegetal aroma with hints of fresh meadow flowers and citrus. The liquor has a smooth, creamy mouth feel with floral notes and a sparkling finish.

A Pleasant Surprise
Bob – NJ – August 04, 2018

Not being familiar with teas from Nepal, I tried a sample of this as suggested by Upton Tea as a Darjeeling alternative. I didn't know what to expect but found it to be a delicious, satisfying tea. There is an earthy, "meadow-y" note to the aroma and a smooth mouthfeel with a bit of tannin. Very refreshing - I ordered more.

Just Okay for Me

It's not bad, but it is a bit different and unusual. I am not a tea connoisseur, so I'm not sure how to describe what I taste, but re-reading the description above, it may be the floral or meadow aspects that would keep me from ordering this again. I tend to dislike floral tastes (e.g., jasmine), so that's my best guess!

Unbeatable price per cup!

Amazing tea! One of my favourites. I'm not a tea expert but usually I like the Darjeeling teas. This one is indeed a great alternative. Very similar in taste and half the price.
