Peppery. Green and peppery. The typical soft, smooth, round flavors of a Darjeeling with a little spinach and black pepper right at the end.
I steeped less than the recommended time, and I am glad I did. I get the hint from what I can taste right now that another 45-60 seconds really would have made this like drinking a spinach salad. So I’m glad I cut it short.
This is definitely a unique set of leaves, as the name Darjeeling green oolong would suggest that they are.
