Vail Mountain Coffee & Tea Co.'s Darjeeling Silver Pearls Tea - Review

Full Flavored "White Tea Oolong"

Darjeeling Silver Pearls blend from Vail Mountain Coffee & Tea Co.

Vail Mountain Coffee & Tea Co.’s Darjeeling Silver Pearls is a full-flavored "white tea oolong" with a hint of muscatel. A tiny leaf and bud are hand-rolled into a delicate pearl that unfurls slightly as it steeps. This smooth, copper-colored brew is partially-oxidized and has hints of floral liquor intertwined with musky undertones. Darjeeling Silver Pearls is ideal for sippers who enjoy smoky Russian tea and like giving their taste buds a kick!

Price: $16 for 1.5 oz

Rating: 14/20
