Very light, smoky and smooth flavor.

The taste mimics the light yellow color, with a tinge of green.

The scent is very sweet, very earthy.

I really like this tea.

Before I write up my tasting notes, I’ll say that I’m not sure if this is DarjeelingTeaXpress’ Jungpana First Flush. The amount I drank was gifted to me by a friend. I’m just using this because it was indeed a 2011 Jungpana First Flush.

I tried two infusions of this tea.

First: This tea is close to what I would consider a classic Darjeeling. It has a nice thick creamy body that is sweet. However, I find, for every sweet note you find, a floral note is taken out. That being said, it’s not as floral as I like my First Flushes to be.

Second: Still has a nice sweet and creamy texture. Even less floral than the first infusion. However, I tasted some nice peppery notes in the taste.

Overall, a nice tea.

The smell is very floral and the cup colour is coppery. It tastes a bit bitter, but fresh nonetheless. Definitely has a muscatel taste. And a bit of a hint of citrus.
