Whittard of Chelsea 1886
Darjeeling Happy Valley 2nd Flush SFTGFOP1 Loose Tea. Darjeeling 2nd flush teas have a more developed slightly nutty taste than 1st flush teas and are more full-bodied. Happy Valley is a famous Darjeeling garden with an reputation for producing top quality teas. This is a rich cup with a beautiful flavor and a touch of the “muscatel” Darjeeling tea is renowned for.
Recently I received a sample of this Single Estate Black Tea from Whittard of Chelsea. As many of you know I start each day with at least 1 Black Tea and then move on to other tea bases throughout the day.
This was a delightful Darjeeling. A nice 2nd Flush.
This has a gentle sweet-woodsy flavor with a bit of nuttiness to it as well. It’s rich and pleasing in every way. It’s a more pronounced flavor that many of the Darjeelings I have been sipping on lately. I can vouch for the ‘muscatel’ flavor they refer to in the product description – especially on the end of the sip on to the aftertaste which lingers admirably.
