Thanks for this one, TheLastDodo! This one is a little confusing, as it is called an oolong but it definitely seems like a Darjeeling. It’s probably because it’s from Nepal that it can’t actually be called a Darjeeling. But it’s the loveliest of first flush Darj flavors – very sweet and fruity. I normally don’t like a first flush. They are sometimes too light in flavor to my tastes, but the flavor with this one is fantastic. At least the color of the brew itself definitely looks like an oolong (a light yellow). The second cup was great too.
