Wow. Wow, wow, wow!
I treated myself to two ounces of what feels like “springtime in a pouch” to me :) I was searching for the finest example of a first flush Darjeeling that I could sleuth out, and this one called to me because I had one other Margaret’s Hope that i just loved.
Wow. Have I said wow yet? :)
This is so smooth and … I don’t know how to describe it except for … fruity but herbaceous rose petals? There is something very familiar about it that has to do with the garden but I can’t put my finger on it. Bright but definitely something(s) herbaceous grounding it and making it very complex. This is a tea that I could go all wine snob on and say something like “wet granite with a stone fruit finish and blah blah blah” if I had more time but right now I’ll just say “Wow, wow, wow!”
This is a HUGE treat and although it was a pretty penny, worth every one of them.
