Though knowing of Darjeeling’s grape-y flavor profile theoretically, I didn’t expect my first sip into this cup to immediately bring up the word ‘grape juice’ in my mind. Further sips reveal a beautiful woody oakiness underneath the tart grape flavor.
I now see never having bothered with Darjeeling (after my first unsuccessful attempt with bagged Darjeeling) was a huge oversight in my tea existence. I can’t wait to get to know this tea better through the five different estate samples from What-Cha.
Flavors: Grapes, Muscatel, Oak, Wood
