This was a newly arrived tea at Granville Island Tea Co. when I visited them. It was a tad pricey for my pocketbook but the vendor was nice enough to throw in a sample with my other purchases!
Unfortunately, this just confirms further that I have a taste for the expensive darjeelings.
This was amazing. So smooth. So mellow. Not a bit of bitter. Characteristically a tad dry and heavy muscatel notes in the background. I will share this with another darjeeling fiend I know and then I will be very sad when it is gone. This is by far the best 2nd flush I have tasted yet. I feel very lucky to have had 2 exceptional darjeelings close together.
