I’ve never had Darjeeling before, and I would have chosen a more premium variety (sample) if I could have (I wanted to sample first flush), but H&S didn’t have such samples available.
However, out of all the standard classic (black) teas I’ve tried, this is probably one of my favorite. It isn’t as bold or strong as the Keemun, EG, or other black tea blends that I’ve had, and for that reason I think I like it. It is more fruity?, lighter, smoother… more like green tea almost (though, it doesn’t really taste like it).

I detected almost a bit of spiciness (like pepper) in the cup for some reason too.
I’d really like to try a high quality Darjeeling now, but don’t really want to buy a whole lot. Maybe someday I’ll buy a sample from somewhere else…
Compared to the EG by H&S I had recently, I like this a lot more.
