From Harney & Sons

Our friends at the Jayshree group own the Singbulli Estate, which is high in the hills (dare we say mountains) of Darjeeling. They made the intriguing tea in the oolong style that is being experimented with in Darjeeling. The tea is much lighter in body and has a nice varietal nose.

The dry leaves smell amazingly malty. I was a tad intimidated to taste it as it didn’t smell like anything that would appeal to my tastebuds. But it is a darjeeling and I’ve been finding more oolongs that I kind of like lately so I had to try!

It brews up very light golden. It seems like it is dry, but then that vanishes and it’s not dry. There is not much malt taste, or if there is, it’s pretty subtle. At any rate, much more subtle than the dry smell would lead one to expect. Even the steeped leaves have a strong malty smell. At least I think that’s how to describe what I’m smelling. Malt and maybe some wet hay? Not a flattering description, I’m sure, but that’s what I can come up with. Definitely a darjeeling, in my mind, though.

Another that I’m glad I picked up and I’ll drink it all eventually, but I probably wouldn’t get it again.
