This is another first flush sample I picked out from Upton in my last order.

I tend to like first flushes a lot but this isn’t anything terribly special to me. I’m getting a light muscatel with a nutty element and a slight bit of bitterness in the finish. I might need to try steeping this at a lower temperature to see what happens. Also Happy Earth Tea mentioned cold brewing their ff darjeelings so I may try it out with this one to see what happens. It’s ok but nothing to rave about. Perhaps my expectations are too high but I want my darjeelings to be truly sublime…
