This tea brews up very light. The leaves don’t really look “black” – they look like a green or perhaps even a white tea because of the silvery tips. But, Happy Earth categorizes this as a black Darjeeling, so I’ll go with it.
And it doesn’t really matter to me, because I LOVE THIS TEA! It’s an amazing first flush. Notes of flower and lime. It’s bright, light, and crisp. Sweet and vibrant with a very fresh taste to it.
