Oh man this is good good good! I’ve heard the term “champagne of teas” applied to darjeelings before. I wouldn’t use it as I can’t stand that stuff. I really want to say medium bodied but what does that even mean?! In my head, medium bodied should be more complex nuances and a heavier feeling tea. (One of the plentiful tea aficionados can clear this up for me if they are so inclined.)
This is bright and coppery with hints of fruity like qualities. I’d say almost peach then grape, so you can tell I really can’t make up my mind on this one. There is a bit of a bite to this one. Nothing unpleasant, just a mineral taste, making it assertive. There is slight bit of astringency, what I think of as standard and acceptable, so over all a scrumptious tea.
