Decided to get this Arya Estate Ruby to try, I assume this is from 2012 since I don’t think the 2013 sf darjeelings are here yet. I don’t tend to like sf’s as much as ff’s but that doesn’t mean I will ever stop trying. :-P
This brews up to be a lovely medium orange color. This is exceptionally fruity for a sf and even has a bit of sweetness to it. I’m also picking up a bit of rose in the finish, very nice. This is one of the better sf darjeelings I’ve had in a while – it was also good with a touch of rock sugar to help bring the sweetness forward a bit.
