This is one of the tastiest teas I’ve ever had. as I wrote at Teawritings.com, “everyone in America knows the basic flavor of darjeeling, because it’s the basic taste of Lipton. However a fine darjeeling is to Lipton what a fine cheese is to Kraft Singles. And the first-flush Hillton? Was the tea equivalent of stopping at a small goat farm’s road stand and eating their first chevre of the year.” And “the really amazing flavor comes on the second steeping. A distinct flavor of lychee emerges, sweet and delicate, and yet the leaves have never been near a lychee fruit.”
