From Le Palais des Thes

Traditionnel en Chine et au Japon, le thé non fermenté reste une rareté en Inde du Nord. Thé vert avec de nombreux bourgeons. Frais et parfumé, son goût rappelle la châtaigne cuite. Une curiosité.

Green Darjeeling. Now that’s something you don’t see every day.
I was given a sample of this tea when I was browsing trough tea collection of my local Palais des Thés shop. (Of course, I went there just to look but bought some Tie Guan Yin anyway). That was few days ago.
So today I was in the mood for something green and decided to try this one. Dry leaves had a lovely rich and somehow sweet aroma. They were also weirdly dark in color and had some hay straws here and there.
After steeping for little less than a minute in my lovely clay kyusu I poured myself a cup of beautifully yellow liquid with woody and slightly “toasted” aroma. Too bad that the taste was disappointing. It was slightly sweet at first, but then unusually bitter and mouth – drying. I thought I may have used too hot water, so with second infusion I was more careful. But the unpleasant itter taste didn’t go away. For the third infusion, I reduced the water temperature even more. And this time, it was much better. It was smoother, still slightly bitter, but much sweeter. Maybe I screwed up the first two steepings with too hot water.
All in all, I would say that this is an above average tea. Lovely aromas and appearance, but gets bitter quickly and leaves very little room for mistakes.
