In my limited experience with Darjeeling first flush teas this is probably the most herbal FF I’ve tasted. It’s crisper and it lacks the sweetness that previous FFs I’ve tried have, and it reminds me of a dry, unoaked white wine. It’s more like a later season darjeeling tea in my opinion, with a distinct muscatel character. I can also taste a fair bit of astringency although it’s not excessive and the tea doesn’t have that mouth-drying effect that later season Darjeelings have on me.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
