This is my first tea tasting note and im glad to be starting since I have always loved tea but never new away to make it more of a hobby then just drinking it.The other day while at Happy Lucky’s Tea Shop in Fort Collins, I was eager to try a new green tea while having a pot of an Oolong called the Iron Goddess of Maiden (which is wonderful). One that wasn’t over bearing or to earthy. One of the employees suggested one of his favorites. Being the Glenburn Green Darjeeling. This tea is a wonderful light quenching green tea. Where it is not to earthy or over bearing. Wonderful after taste, which is not too strong. The light gold liquor is a delightful sight to the eye. Very soothing holds flavor through multiple steepings.
