This tea is similar to Darjeeling, which is not too surprising as it is also grown in the Himalayas and only about 100km away across the border in Nepal.

The main difference I notice in the flavour is that it doesn’t have the muscatel like Darjeeling but it does have kind of a fruity taste. I sometimes even detected a sweet caramelly aftertaste. Like Darjeeling, this tea has some astringency and I would be careful not to steep it too long if you don’t that aspect to be overpowering.

It definitely has darjeeling and black tea characteristics. A truly enjoyable tea! I also enjoy it being organic and from a cooperative of farmers.
