Dry aroma: different kinds of jams (red fruits), mahogany
Wet aroma: muscatel

Liquor: deep gold, medium-bodied-bodied, flavorful
First infusion – Very fruity, with a lingering apricot aftertaste.
Second infusion – Resembles a leafhopper oolong. Stonefruit-like and tangy.

Yay for getting to try a bunch of darjeelings! I thought I’d start with the first flush and then go in “chronological” order, if you know what I mean. The leaves of this tea are short, thin, and flaky, colored green and brown. The best way that I can describe the smell is that it smells slightly green. The leaves brew up a light golden yellow liquor and taste like gentle hay with that “mountain air” taste I associate with darjeelings. The sip finishes with some sweetness and subtle tingling on the tongue, without any astringency. First flush is where it’s at :)

Flavors: Hay, Sweet

The dry leaf looked pretty brown, with a few greener ones thrown in. As soon as I added water, though, they all started looking greener. By the time I pulled them out, mostly green with a few slightly light brown ones. Interesting.

This one has that green flavor, but not as strong as some of the others. It seems to have more of that whatever it is that I tasted in #3, and less of the green. I like it, but not as much. #3 and #5 were my favorites.
