I’m starting my day with this one! It tastes like flowers and herbs for the most part. It’s a bit drier than the others I have been trying lately but it’s still a really neat darjeeling offering!

This is very dry and grassy, even by Darjeeling standards. It’s quite astringent as well. There’s an unexpected (to me, anyway) herbal aroma I’m not liking very much. I’m glad to have had the chance to try this and will certainly be finishing my cup, but it’s definitely not my favorite Darjeeling. This is another sample from Nicole Martin – or at least I think this is what it was!

Oh good! I saw this one listed in your cupboard after the meetup and thought it sounded right!

Backlog:

A crisp, classic first flush darjeeling taste. It is an invigorating yet light and clean tasting tea. It almost sparkles on the palate.

This is the kind of tea that I like to drink when I need a little “lift” … something to perk me up when I’m feeling down because it’s very uplifting and invigorating, but, without the heaviness that other invigorating teas sometimes have.

Earthy, slightly vegetative, not so fruity as some Darjeeling teas. More of an indistinct fruit tone to this.

A really enjoyable cuppa. Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/06/13/organic-sungma-first-flush-darjeeling-tea-from-happy-earth-tea/

This is really light and green tasting, which surprised me. It steeped twice comfortably, and had pretty full flavor each time. I would not do one long steep as it seems to be rather astringent, even with shorter steeps, and I do not like much astringency. It was pretty good, but I don’t think I would buy this for myself because I like thicker (but not astringent) tasting blacks and oolongs.
