From DarjeelingTeaXpress

Our first offering from the famed Badamtam tea estate known for producing excellent first flush teas and this one is no different. Our selectors have termed it the best 2012 First Flush Tea as it makes a highly varied and complex cup; boasts fruit (white grape skins/cherry), a slight tartness and a refreshing, but not over-strong, greenness. Complexity rolls in the mouth and leaves a pleasant aftertaste. It is made from AV2 clonal plants known for excellent flavour and this is very pronounced in this tea. When steeped for 3 minutes, it produces an excellent aroma and and when steeped for 5 minutes or more the it assumes a significant body without loosing the flavour. Try this “self-drinker” on its own. Invite friends

Another earthy tea, although true to the name this seems more flowery and the scent seems stronger, the leaves are beautifully and wholly twisted, like white tea.

This tea is definitely interesting, as there are quite a few floral tones, but deeper and fainter are detailed fruit flavors that give a sweet undertone.

I’m finding myself sipping more to try find other details to the flavors, indeed a very interesting tea.
