I’m always happy to see new teas from Mark T. Wendell. Hartley is one-cool-dude!
This smells like a greener-type-black/darjeeling with crispy notes!
The taste is a little like cracked pepper and green veggies with hints of fruitiness trying to hide underneath along with a few floral notes as it tries to cool at room temp for 2 or 3 minutes.
This is a really good Darjeeling. The end-sip hints at toast – I really like that!
