The aroma and the visual aspect of this tea scream Darjeeling. The way Darjeeling smells,
the slightly mineral, fresh, like a clean rainfall. It is a unique smell that I can only attribute to Darjeeling. Kinda like saying something tastes like chicken. But what is the taste of chicken? I Don’t Know it just is! Oh, fudge… Now I’m tasting chicken. That’s a weird mix with tea. Speaking of taste considering how it smells I don’t quite get those muscatel notes I’m looking for. This one is utterly perplexing. I have tried both infuser in cup style and gong fu style but I feel both lack the Darjeeling punch I was looking for. If steeped too little there is no flavor. Steeped too long and it’s astringent with a bitter woods flavor.
