This is a really interesting tea.

The aroma is very fresh and earthly, with hints of floral and almond scents.

The taste is nicely sweet and mild and very smooth, not at all what I was expecting of a first flush Darjeeling.

I would share this tea with those that are unsure about most Darjeelings and their typical strong and complex flavors, as this is a simple mild tea with light complexity.
