serendipiteadarjeelingseeyokThere is just something so comforting about a hot cup of tea on a warm day. Who am I kidding? There is something comforting about a cuppa tea on any type of day. My tea of choice today is a 2nd Flush Darjeeling from the Seeyok Estate located near the Nepalese border.

The leaves of this tea range in color from a dark black to a deep brown to a gold. The length of the leaves interesting enough seem to vary with the coloring with the lightest being the longest. There are also a few short stems mixed up in my sample. The aroma is faintly fruity, so faint that I can’t really break down just which one, just an overall fruity aroma.

Once brewed, the liquor is a rich liquid gold but there is no aroma to speak of besides a general one of teaness. Not sure if that is a real word but if it isn’t it really should be. The taste is slightly dry with a twinge of muscatel at the back of the throat. It makes for a pleasant cup but nothing really jumps out at me.

Would I stock this in my personal stash? Probably not because I have met Darjeelings that call to me much more strongly. Would I refuse a cup if offered? Most certainly not. It makes an enjoyable if simple cup of tea. Or perhaps it is just too subtle for my tastes.
