Flowery, perfume, roses. That tiniest bit of perfume-y sting in the back of the throat. The colors are all pinks and light purples and a little bit of a flower petal yellow pastel.
The flavor is strong and all in the back third of the mouth and throat. The front of the tongue picks up nothing for me. There’s also the teensiest tiniest something that makes me see/taste orange.
Very strong floral taste and smell, though. A really lovely Darjeeling.
It makes the mouth water after you swallow, for a while.
