This is a sample from Boychik’s Darjeeling Sampler. Thank you!
I finally got the opportunity to try compare and try all 4 Upton Darjeelings together. This was the lightest of the 4 and the only 1st flush. I wrote notes of slightly muscky, smooth, not much astringency and I used the word dandelion to describe the taste. I think of the 4 this was my least favorite, but I am finding, at least with this sample set that the more astringent the more I seemed to like the Darljeeling. I am also finding that I tend to enjoy Darjeelings more in the afternoon, as a lighter fruitier tea.
