As a fan of 1st flush Darjeeling, this was recommended to me by the great merchants at TeaGschwedner. Reddish-amber honey in color with bright orange hues draw you into aromas of citrus and fruit with touches of mountain flora. Lovely honey-apple sweetness with hints of cut grass which is balanced with a great astringent finish which draws upon flavors of fall leaves, dried flowers and lemon zest.
A great every day tea for fans of Darjeeling 1st flush as it is considerably less expensive. Where it lacks in depth is makes up in honesty… this is just a classy tea.

A Food and Beverage professional for over 15 years in Chicago Illinois and professional musician. Studying tea, along with wine, beer, spirits and food has been a lifetime passion.
Aside from my service profession I am a private music teacher and music director for multiple music ensembles including The Chicago Zither Orchestra.
Pastimes include composing instrumental music, collecting and listening to historical and rare classical music recordings, gourmet cooking and enjoying the sport of baseball.

Tea: I am really into a wide variety of teas. I tend to avoid flavored teas but will try herbal teas. If I had to list favorites I am a fan of Japanese shaded green teas, Darjeeling 1st flushes, Assam 2nd flushes, Pu-erh (sheng and shou), Oolongs and delicate refined whites. I really do not have a favorite tea, just as I do not have a favorite food, wine, artist or composer… as there are just far too many enjoyable variables and differences that can be “my favorite” depending on the context.

Feel free to private message me about whatever.
