I have been here for 5 weeks now without having an excellent cup of Darjeeling first flush, which I drink most of the time at home in Canada. I had been to Twinnings tasted their and was far from being impressed by their first flush Darjeeling at 40 pounds/100 g!!! This guy here , Guranje, really knows about tea and Darjeeling is his "specialtea" no kidding. The he served me was a very green and fresh one and had that special under taste that only Darjeeling have. It was a very subtle and delicate tea and one of the very good Darjeelings FF I had. The price was fair at 14 pounds for 150g , I will certainly order online from him. He was just very secretive about the garden his tea came from... Answering it was never the same, from very small producers and even from his own, maybe he has never been asked that question and did not want to share his secrets. He was nice enough to offer me a full cup with my purchase and it felt soooo good! If you, like me, still do not understand why the English let the leaves infuse for hours and then add tons of sugar and milk to mask the bitterness of their tea, then this is your guy! If you are used to a ton of sugar and milk in your tea, give his teas a try. You won't be disappointed.
