From Harney & Sons

The last tea of 2011 is here. Just as we celebrate the new teas, let us honor 2011. This tea was made at the famous Castleton Estate, which is half way up to the city of Darjeeling. This autumnal has hints of the lovely stone fruit flavors found in second flushes, and it is lighter bodied. It makes for a nice tea at a nice price.

I’m… the only person to review this? Seriously?

Alright! I decided to be a little gentle with this one for my first cup, which I think turned out to be a good idea. After under four minutes, it’s quite flavorful. The muscatel is present in the forefront, as one would expect. It’s “green” tasting to me, reminding me of spring and grass. There is a lingering sweetness about it that’s pleasant. It also sort of reminds me of green beans, steamed and sweet. As far as astringency goes, it does dry my mouth a bit, but I don’t mind.

The official description of this tea mentions notes of stone fruit, but I’m not really getting that. Hmm. There is a hint of fruit on the exhale, but I’m not tasting anything specific.
