This was a bit of a disappointment. Golden honey in color with tints of red moving into yellow hues near cups edge. Heavy sauna-like aroma of dry wood (aspen/cedar) and milk chocolate on the steeped leaves which do not transfer much to the cup. Much fruitier that other 2nd flush Darjeeling teas I have had, and also not as complex and a little muddy, where the individual notes are not defined and make it just taste like “tea”. Seems to be missing something… the classic muscatel notes are very quiet and the light astringency on the finish tends to make me think I am drinking a “dumbed down” or “Lite” version of what I was looking for. That being said, its not at all offensive… just not really that exciting for a single estate Darjeeling.
