A nice loose tea sold in Harrods tea shop in London, the dry tea has small dark leaves with dry fruit or candy-like smell. Current price is 200 GBP per kg; didn’t say which year its from but I assume it’s 2012 version.

It is the first second flush Darjeeling I have (well, I don’t know which flush the Fortnum and Mason FTGFOP is so that one doesn’t count). The dry tea is dark coloured, has a ‘very ripen fruit dried’ smell. For the first time I steeped with boiling water, it was kind of nice but a bit too much astrigency for me. It’s probably against the rule but the second time I had it with lower temp water, the smell of liquid is mild but delightful, the taste is smooth with a constant sweetness back of the throat. Very mild astrigency if there’s any. The steeped leaves smell very floral and sweet. I think next time I might increase temp a little bit to extract the full flavour.
