Well I have to agree with my fellow Steepsterites about this one. I have to admit certain people influence my purchases. I only got a sample of this because I am not familiar with Darjeeling. I should buy more. The dried leaf smells heavenly. Of springtime. Sunshine. The brew is utterly intoxicating. I have 3 samples of FF Darrjeeling from Upton and this is the clear winner. This is truly a winner.
