Re: Darjeeling First Flush 2020

I purchased Millikthong first flush Darjeeling 2020 from Dobra Tea in Burlington VT. It's a classic first flush tea: very light and layered with different flavors. It's one of the best I've had in a few years. If you order some on line, save a little for me and Victoria.

Re: What Green Are You Drinking

Finished my sample of a mystery roasted sencha that was a gift. Absolutely love it so am on a mission to find more. I'm lucky to live in an international city; the Japanese producer who provided it (Kagoshima Seicha Co.) just happens to be in town, so he's coming over for tea tomorrow. He said it's...
