The leaves on this one are light green to burnt auburn. Lots of aroma and nice uniform shape.

First Steep:

LOTS OF WINTERGREEN. wow. almost like a Life Saver. The liquor is a pale orange and the actual taste is light although the aroma/aftertaste is quite strong. A minty and floral punch. A drying astringency pervades after the aroma has faded. As with many first flushes, its not a very deep tea but a nice fresh cup of tea.

Second Steep:
Still pronounced mint, but with a bit more body. The floral notes are also more forward as well. A cedar-y note has appeared and a bit of leather. still very dry. Darjeeling first flush is as light a black tea as you can find. Always interesting…

Third Steep:

The sweetest of the 3 steeps. A bit of berry and a “bubble gummy” aroma. Body is much lighter but the aromas are still strong.

A great cup of tea! I have to admit, darjeeling is not my favorite tea but they are so artfully made and complex they are still so fun to drink.

recommended!
