I don’t personally enjoy darjeelings. This reminded me of a very high quality bud-only green tea I once had in china, with a slight vegetal astringency but generally not overwhelmingly so. This isn’t the kind of body I’m used to, but it’s not something that takes away from the tea either. As a person who normally turns my nose up at darjeeling, this is an excellent tea. I got this as a sample from some other tea I ordered from TeaSource.

It tastes a lot more like green tea with hints of lemongrass and only a trace of spearmint. As the tea cools down it started tasting bitter and very green to me. Eh.

After I sip this tea, the sweet stevia kind of coats the back of my mouth and throat. It smells herby but the flavor is a pretty herby-medicinal, only slightly softened by the sweet stevia flavor. I’m not sure if this is just me but my tummy was a little unhappy after sipping it.

The stevia can really be tasted here, with chamomile and licorice tasting after. After that, it tastes slightly sweetly medicinal, reminding me of my mother’s traditional chinese medicine.

The first thing I taste is chamomile. It kind of overwhelms everything else.

It is rare that one finds a rose tea in which the rose isn’t overpowering, but distinctively there. Props to having an excellent rose flavor without even touching perfumeyness. The tea leaf (dry) smells like chocolate and roses! Lovely.

It’s not a particularly amazing or impressive tea. All I can really say is that it has a certain dryness to it. I’m unsure how drinking tea can make me thirsty but it happened here.

Dry leaf scent: It reminds me of sweet earth and fruits in scent. Actually it reminds me of a keemun!

Wet Leaf scent: Very strongly sweet-earthy. The greatest thing I could attribute to this would be wet leaf litter but it’s not nearly off-putting as that.

The tea: Smells like a yunnan. Dark chocolate with a bit of pepper. The earthiness is less pronounced than in the leaves. The color is a dark, slightly opaque amber after a 3 minute steep. In fact I worry I oversteeped it a bit. It tastes strong as I like them without any bitterness or astringency. There’s a malty-sweet to this, with a lingering almost fruity aftertaste. This is a very mellow tea and it’s not particularly tippy, although there is a noticeable amount of tip.

I was originally pretty skeptical- I figured with its price it would be pretty bad, maybe barely scraping mediocre. I suppose I can say I’m pleasantly surprised.
