This is the best decaffeinated Darjeeling I've tried. The astringency is milder than a regular Darjeeling, which actually works well with the other flavors. It's a very balanced, delicious tea.
Like another reviewer here, I doubted that the delicate nature of Darjeeling would be worthwhile as a decaf tea. However, I had really been enjoying the distinct flavor of darjeeling, and had been trying to get away from all the caffeine I was consuming. Once I tried this decaf darjeeling, I was hooked! It makes a wonderful decaf and I am so glad I found it. I generally buy a pound at a time, to tell you how much I do enjoy it. If you enjoy the flavor of darjeeling and are looking to cut your caffeine intake, do not hesitate to try this tea!
When I had to give up caffeine I began searching for quality decaf tea, trying many brands and styles. I have always loved Darjeeling but never thought the delicate flavor could survive in a decaf tea. I was wrong. This tea preserves the subtle Darjeeling flavors while eliminating the caffeine. By far the best decaf Darjeeling available anywhere.
