I bought this one because of Nicole!
She kindly sent me months ago a sample of Sungma Darjeeling from H&S and I loved it. Unfortunately it is not available here in France and I found this Sungma at Mariage Frères so I decided to give a try.
It was clearly a good idea : this is a fruity, light and energetic Darjeeling.
The classic muscatel taste is really there.
However it resteeps quite nicely (2nd steep) and even if you oversteep it (15 minutes this morning as my boss came in my office and I forgot to pull the basket off my mug :S) it doesn’t become bitter : incredible.
Sure I got my Darjeeling staple :)
