This tea was okay. It lacks that refreshing, almost minty quality of a Darjeeling, has none of those thicker muscatel notes, nor strong savoriness in the finish. The woodsy tannins were also pretty weak. (Unfortunately, these are all the things I love in a Darjeeling!)
It absolutely did have the light floral scent of Lily of the Valley and an amazing sweet lemon meringue note. This might be a good tea to have with some lemon butter cookies, but I don’t think I like it enough to want to drink it alone.
EDIT: I tried another steeping with slightly more leaf this time, and now I am picking up a buttered spinach vegetal note and a lemon flavor. I don’t know what to think of this tea. I don’t really like the taste of it as I am drinking it, but both the aroma and aftertaste are wonderful. Yuck…Also getting a grassiness now.
