The dry leaves are a really neat color, almost purply brown. After steeping, they have a bit of a dark green look to them, with flecks of lighter and darker browns mixed in.
I wasn’t expecting to like this tea.
And I like it.
It’s fruity, but not really. Woody, but not quite. I don’t think I’d drink this all the time, but I’m not going to say no.
I will probably call it quits on the darjeeling teas with this one, though. It was a lot of fun while it lasted, but I’m ready to move on.
