Another tea I forgot I had, but found once again while re-arranging my tea cupboard this week.

Definitely taste the muscatel and apricot in this — apricot is particularly strong as an aftertaste. Initial flavor is slightly floral. Also slightly astringent overall, but in a good way — not bitter.

As far as Darjeeling teas go, I prefer second flushes to first flushes. This tea is a perfect example of why — much more flavor and body. I’m glad I have enough of this one to last for the rest of summer!

I also prefer second flush Darjeelings, which is appreciated by my wallet.

I’m surprised to actually find a Darjeeling tea that ik really like. This one is it! It has a very smooth mouthfeel and very distinct flavours of apricot and wood. The flavours don’t linger too much and there is only a very slight bitterness, almost no astringency.

Admittedly, it’s still not my favorite type of tea on account of the not so pronounced flavour profile, but it is without a doubt the best Darjeeling i’ve ever had.

Delicious light woodiness and juicy apricot middle and aftertaste. The aftertaste lingers, with hints of orange blossom and pear.

I love the fruity flavors and the slightly drying tannins. Excellent morning or afternoon tea for a good price.
