This is one of two Darjeelings I picked up from Capital Tea Ltd. Historically I haven’t been a huge fan of Darjeeling, but I haven’t had a ton of experience with it so I figured it was worth a shot.
This is honestly really good though! I’m surprised by the complete and utter lack of astringency. It’s also quite light, with a soft breadiness and very light dried fruit notes. A hint of cinnamon honey shows itself at the middle and especially the end of the sip. It actually somewhat reminds me of Bai Hao, which is one of my favorite types of oolong.
So smooth and easy-drinking, but still flavorful! Happy that I chose this one to try, as I’ll enjoy sipping down the rest of the 30g package. ❤
