I’m not a huge fan of darjeeling tea but it’s growing on me. When I do drink it I gravitate towards the 2nd flush varieties as they are less “grassy” flavored. I decided to order this one based on the description. It’s described as a high elevation Himalayan foothills variety. I enjoy Nilgiri teas for their higher elevation growths contributing to a milder less astringent flavor. The description doesn’t say more specifically why it’s a “blend” other than maybe they mixed with darjeelings from several farms/estates. The brew from this has a medium muscatel flavoring that is mild and tasty, not astringent and quite nice. I think I steeped it longer than I wanted to but it still tastes very nice.
