Darjeeling really is the oolong of India. I should look into how it’s made. Got this with the black tea sample pack. Has a very strong fruity/grape flavor that adds to the pleasant astringency. The sweetness is balanced by said astringency as well. Later sips provide a woody, slightly spicy flavor. I got a few good steepings out of this so far adding to my mug, so it doesn’t loose flavor too quick.
Overall its a pleasant tea. This would be great for spring when you want the caffeine kick of black tea, but something less heavy and malty.
