Giddapahar Estate Second Flush TGBOP (2018) Darjeeling

4.5 star average rating
2 Reviews Write a Review
This 2018 broken-leaf offering has a classic second flush Darjeeling flavor profile, rich with muscatel notes and a pronounced honey sweetness that blooms as the tea cools. The dark amber liquor has a warm toasty aroma and a smooth, lingering finish. The full-bodied cup is strong enough for the addition of milk, if desired.

  • Very good tea

  • A nice rich cup though not quite as muscatel-forward as I'd hoped/expected. Nice toasted, slightly woody notes though that compensate. I think this will work better as a morning wake-me-up for me; will look for something fruitier for the evening cup.

  • I like to buy several samples of the same tea and select for flavor. This one came out on top if you like a rich, classic muscatel second-flush Darjeeling. It also produced a darker liquor than the others so addition of milk is your option. I definitely will order a regular packet.
