Turzum FF Darjeeling - Tea Emporium

by Victoria » Jun 20th, '10, 21:30

I just did a review of my Tea Emporium direct from India buy and I wanted to mention it here in case you all might be wondering about some good 2010 First Flush Darjeeling.

I tried the Castleton Moonlight, Puttabong and Turzum. As I tried each one, I was thinking wow, this is the best ... till I tried the next. So they are listed above in order of my preference, but all are excellent. The Castleton Moonlight being the milder and smoothest of the three, but then that is what its known for.

All three of these teas are really excellent. And you can read about my rating of Tea Emporium here:

Thanks! The Turzum sample that you sent me was so nice.. I'm usually a fan of greener teas but it was a great cup. :wink:

Great stuff! Received my shipment a few weeks ago from TE, and thought that this was the best-of-the-best FF teas. The 2nd flush Turzum is also top notch. :wink:
