880 Tasting Notes
This smells like the prettiest bouquet that you’ve ever recieved. No kidding around on the floral smells. Brewed up its equally floral, and the sip is an oolong that isnt too green, mellowed out by a fresh and light rose and violet flavor.
I really like this, as I am a major fan of floral elements in tea. But be warned, if you dont care for floral tastes. The floral elements are very sophisticated, but they still are floral. For those of you like me, however, you will drink this up.
Cant wait to try a resteep and see how it does!
I arrived early to work, so I went to the nearest place to fortify myself with more tea. Unfortunately I wasn’t early enough to go to the really good coffee shop, with the nice selection of tea, so I had to settle for a place that has all its tea in a basket near the front, that you pick out what you want and dump hot water on it.
So I picked this, as I like Darjeeling, and I’d never tried this brand before.
Meh. Its drinkable, but not exciting. One dimensional and weak. Will I never find a truly exceptional Darjeeling?
Its up extra early today, as I’m housesitting and need to tend to the pets of the household, which include three cats, a parakeet, two ducks and fifteen canaries. They dont need a lot of work, but still, those canaries need to be fed!
I turn, on such a morning, to something I already know, as opposed to something new. This has a lovely orange-spice quality to it. A very pleasant cup in the morning.
