"Its unique flavor, somewhere between a green tea and a Darjeeling, is complex but accessible, and unlike anything else I’ve tasted."

Teaviews Member: MaryAnn MaryAnn's review:
"The light crispness of this tea was perfectly suited to mid afternoon on a beastly hot and dry day in the US Midwest. Complex taste but not ponderous. "

Rare Tea Republic Tumsong SFTGFOP1 Second Flush Organic

8.5/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"I like the mention of sap in the website's tasting notes; to me this catches what is essential and good in many darjeelings - a sense of strong flowing flavor energy that is communicated to the drinker. "

Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
" A lovely cup, with lots of character and complexity. Slightly drying, subtle notes of what I can only describe as “coniferous muscatel” give this brew a great thirst-quenching aspect."

Rare Tea Republic Temi SFTGFOP1 First Flush

8.2/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"Primary notes are floral and muscatel but there's always a good sense of the citrusy (the RTR website mentions pineapple, and there's something to that) and the spicy that keeps this from being a strictly floral kind of tea. "

8/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: MaryAnn MaryAnn's review:
"The tea is so delicate that in my first tasting I didn’t quite know what to make of it. But on the second try, I began to get it – half-fermented first flush with unusual delicacy."

Rare Tea Republic Wah FTGFOP First Flush

6/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: MaryAnn MaryAnn's review:
"Dominant taste resembles a cross between first and second flush Darjeeling. I take it that the China hybrid quality is shown in the tea’s pleasant lemon overtones, a hint of pepper and of parsley."
