    A truly exceptional tea.

    This refined and beautiful 2nd flush Darjeeling has a thrilling muscatel undertone, a subtle, perfumed taste which never lets you down. I look forward to it with the same relish as I experience at the prospect of a glass of fine wine. Jing's 2nd flush is head and shoulders above other brands I use (Hampstead tea company, etc). Indeed, it should be added that it's not easy to get Darjeeling this good any more, hence it's price. But when you consider you pay £3.00 for a Starbuck's coffee, then it's still a pretty good deal! (this is not encouragement to put the price up, Jing!) To conclude I can only say that tea this good has to form part of any cultivated person's day - indeed, of their whole outlook on life.

    My favourite so far

    I am, by no means, a tea connoisseur but the Darjeeling Second Flush has just amazed me - such a beautiful flavour. We have gradually worked our way through the Tea Bag Explorer and this one has come out tops. We are tending to use the Assam Breakfast Tea as the standard, the Ceylon loose tea for something lighter and refreshing and the Darjeeling for special moments and the fruitier ones for just when you want some warm and flavoursome. We first came across Jing Tea in Paris this August and won't ever return to supermarket teas again
