Review: Thunderbolt Tea’s 7 Darjeeling Teas - #5

The Subject: Giddapahar Musk ’09 — 2nd Flush from Thunderbolt Tea.


Water temperature: 212° F
Steeping time: 5 minutes

Aroma, dry: Earthy, rich, planty, hint of natural sweetness
Aroma in the cup, plain: Floral, planty, earthy
Color in the cup, plain: Dark reddish brown
Taste, plain: Rich, full tea taste; hint of floral notes; slight edge (tang, sharpness)

Another distinct tasting tea that still has the overall characteristics of a tea from Darjeeling, India. This and the other Darjeelings that steep up to a darker color can stand up well to a little milk and sweetener if you want to give it a try. However, like the other samples, this tea tastes very pleasing on its own. Again, very different from those other sample teas.
