Any Darjeeling Tea Drinkers


Well, I'll ask this question of you, then.
When I was a kid, Darjeeling teas were much darker than they are today. It seems that over the years they have become less and less fermented.
I have been told that what I need to ask for in order to get the old style darker tea is a "fully-withered Darjeeling." I have found a few of them, such as the Rohini Enigma and one of the Puttabong estate teas.
What other ones are out there? --scott

I've tended to find Darjeelings too weak for my taste. Do the fully withered ones have more character? Toci

Yes! Try the Rohini Enigma, or ask Upton's for a sample of their Makaibari estate second flush (DJ-141). I think you will be much happier than you are with the modern Darjeelings. --scott
