A flavorful Darjeeling – a nice muscatel note. Sweet, fruity, nutty, and earthy. A very enjoyable cuppa! I even noticed hints of malt that made me question if I was tasting a Darjeeling! This definitely seems like a stronger, more robust Darjeeling … not the sparkling, crisp lighter Darjeeling that I’ve come to expect when I drink a Darjeeling.
But don’t mistake that for me not enjoying this because I really enjoyed it – especially because it was really different. A very nice tea.
