2014 (?)

A sweet, slightly vegetal smell from the steeped leaves. A nice honey liquor, with a honey aroma coming from the cup. That works really well for me! The liquor is thin, clean tasting, sweet and woody, slightly vegetal, slightly honey, a little bitter, a little astringent. It holds up well I think. The sweetness leaves a nice slightly numb tongue. The aroma is always 50/50 honey/plants, with the astringency always tugging your tongue back. Its a nice balance. As the cup cools it dips into deeper territory, with a slight hint of nuts. not sure which, but it was there.

All in all, a very nice first flush Darjeeling.

Basically loads of Fenghuang, jade oolong & sheng puerh.

90+ is godly

80-90 is something i would buy again.

60-80 ok, but probably more bland or basic in their flavour.

0-60 something tastes wrong with this one.
