The dark, attractive leaves produce a cup with sweet vegetal aroma and pleasing, crisp, flavor notes that linger on the palate. An excellent Darjeeling for all green tea enthusiasts.

Although not particularly pleased, at least I was kind of entertained with this tea. Its long, thin and wiry leaves smelled surprisingly of milk chocolate and it was a pretty strong aroma like the one coming from a freshly unwrapped milk chocolate bar. Not exactly what I would expect from a Darjeeling, even a green one, but it smelled tasty nevertheless so intrigued, I brewed some right away.

The brew is disappointing, the chocolaty goodness is mostly gone and what is left is lightly sweet aroma without any distinguishing characteristics. The taste again has nothing in common with Darjeelings and is mellow and vegetal instead, with sweet buttery notes. Overall it reminds me more of Chinese greens, without smokiness.
