I have finally received my samples of first flushes from DarjeelingTeaXpress, I am quite excited.
After acquiring my favorite DarjeelingTeaXpress tea, Gopaldhara Wonder Tea, I started shopping, and the first tea that I wanted to try had caught my eye instantly.
It is one of their best selling teas, but that isn’t what caught my attention.
I had tried a vintage Darjeeling once before and loved every leaf, every drop, every steep, so I had to try this one.
There is a delicate feel to this tea, very warm and soft in both scent and presentation, a careful and exquisite leaf.
Steeping gives a deep blonde tone, with bouquets of sweet flowery scents.
But the real prize is the actual taste, buttery rich and full bodied with complex flowery flavors, followed with a sweetly fruity after-taste and hints of vanilla.
This tea is a beautiful way to start this morning.
