This has an unusual taste for a green tea, at least the ones that I am familiar with. I really like the way it smells. It doesn’t quite taste the way it smells, though there are notes that are reminiscent of it. My friend says the smell reminds him of Irish Breakfast tea, which makes sense because it is a Darjeeling style tea, (Darjeeling tea is usually one of the components of Irish Breakfast tea.) I liked the second infusion better than the first infusion. For some reason I liked the blend of flavours better.
