From Shui Tea

SFTGFOP* 1st Flush, Poobong Estate. Imagine surviving a desperate winter at the top of the Himalayas. Spring breaks, birds fly, and you live again. This tea, the first picked at the Poobong tea estate in the spring, captures some of the most vivid and freshest taste in all of Darjeeling. An uncommon black tea with many layers of flavor.

I’ve been going through all of my Shui Tea samples trying to decide on my re-orders. I’m agonizing over this because it’s like trying to pick your favorite child. After tasting, re-tasting, ordering and categorizing, I’ve decided this is my favorite (only slightly ahead of Black Ruby) of their unflavored black teas.

What I like most is the complexity and the crisp “snap” of this tea. I’m upping the rating on this so it stands out from the pack.
