Much darker in colour and rather stronger in flavour compared with other first flush Darjeeling teas. Drinking a cup in comparison with the Arya autumnal flush from last year. The Ruby has a distinctly greener taste, less fruity, although it is also a bit toasty. Less muscatel flavor in teas from this estate? They both have the flavor profile that I associate with Darjeeling but it is subdued. This is a lovely tea to look at, the leaves are extremely long, thick and beautifully twisted.
