First off, thank you DCS for the sample!
I love Darjeelings. Usually first flushes, but there are just some days where you need a second flush. When its freezing cold outside…nothing is better than a hot cup of a second flush Darjeeling. I’ve tried the Margaret’s Hope tea estate many times. Its kinda everywhere. This one is different. Its above and beyond what I’ve had in the past. Maybe its the weather, maybe its the tea, but I may be converting to a second flusher. (that last bit just sounds weird).
Not too astringent, it has a delicious muscatel taste with a hint of nuts.
