Like a walk in the forest.
Picking up a soggy branch and tearing the bark off.
Sweet subtle notes of brown sugar.
This tea grows near Darjeeling and shows some of the unique characteristics of the terroir. It is a fuzzy tea which leaves are processed to end up being mixed dark chocolate brown and golden “light brown”. The fuzz is very akin to the fuzz found on a peach. It’s all over the inside of the tin; probably one of the strangest things I’ve seen. Even the golden leaves display a strange fur like appearance. Golden retriever tea. Still having much difficulty with this site… Really wish someone else would take it over.
