This sample came in my latest RtR order along with a bunch of other samples.
I haven’t had fantastic experiences with any green darjeelings so far, but the description of this just sounded so nice, I thought I would give it a try, AND I need to feel perky because I am going out for dinner and to hear some music later.
So this was steeped for 3 minutes at 180 F and at first I did not taste much, but now that my cup is cooling down a bit I am getting some very unique flavors here. It’s vegetal but definitely a PUMPKIN note, wow! This is pretty neat. I also get some nuttiness here and a touch of sweet honey notes. For a green tea this is pretty far out, I almost wish I had gotten more but it isn’t cheap.
Glad I got to try this one, it’s enjoyable!
