From Happy Earth Tea

DRY LEAF: The leaves are small, wiry and well rolled, with colors raging from black to dark brown with a smattering of green. The aroma is a complex smorgasbord of floral and fruity notes with also biscuity and nutty characteristics.

INFUSION: The overall color of the wet leaves is dark brown. It has traces of green. The nose is long with mix of nutty, peppery and sweet aroma.

CUP: The light golden liquor has a sparkle that tells of the healthy bushes that went into making this tea. The flavor is brisk and sweet with a floral fragrance and a nutty undertone. The cup is refreshing, with a slight dry kick that does not detract from the enjoyment of the tea. The aftertaste is a lingering malty sweetness.

Brewing Directions: The leaves of this tea infuse pretty strongly. Please use only half a teaspoon for a cup/mug of tea. Do not steep for more than 3 minutes. If you find the liquor strong, you may add a pinch of sugar.

Ahhhhh!
Incredibly smooth! Fairly malty! BUTSMOOTH! a bit floral – but not grassy floral. A hint of nuttiness. This is an awesome smooth darjeeling! Lovely!

It does infuse to a medium brown and the color is lovely too!

This looks more like a 2nd Flush, as you know they tend to be more nutty. Like me! :))

Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea. It’s a really nice Darjeeling. A really nice first flush. Malty and sweet, not so much of a muscatel note but that’s kind of expected with a first flush. There are some nice fruity notes that border on a ‘grape-like’ taste but it’s not quite that of a muscat grape … more of a sweet taste that falls somewhere in between apple and grape, with notes of a citrus-y briskness.

Nice earthy tones, nutty notes and a hint of spice too. A distinct masculine tea.

Very nice.
