When I opened the package I assumed this was a white tea because the leaves didn’t look like those of any Darjeeling I’d ever tried. Ditto with the brew – very pale, yellowish-tan. Big, long leaves that looked green when they unfurled, too. But it tastes like a black tea! I wouldn’t call it weak, just subtle. Little bit of muscat, slightly floral. A good one to drink at night. Take a regular Darjeeling, and just turn down the dials a liiiiiittle bit instead of diluting or under-steeping it, and you get this tea. I usually drink black tea with milk, but I wouldn’t put it in this one because the flavour on its own is delicate and pleasant just with a bit of sugar. Pleasant surprise. Something different, and not what I would have thought I’d like, but I was proven wrong! Thanks, Stacy :)
