A very nice FF Darjeeling this one, although not all that much different from FF black teas to be honest. It is maybe a bit more grassy & sweet, and less floral & astringent than those.

The aroma is interesting but not too pungent. There are notes of spices (nutmeg and others), grass, eggs, and cookies in the dry leaf smell. On the other hand, wet leaves have a marine, sea shell like aroma.

The taste is refreshing and very well balanced (sour, sweet, savoury, floral above all else). In later steeps it also gets a bit more woody. Among the flavours are notes of cucumber, sweet pepper, apple, dry grass, but also many others. Aftertaste is a bit spicy with an underlying persistent sweetness.

Mouthfeel is smooth, bubbly and oily with a good thickness to it too. It can get a bit astringent too, but nothing overpowering. The spicy character makes it quite warming in the mouth too.
