8 Tasting Notes
That is a incredible green tea, very fine and aromatic, lightly floral and sweet, with a buttery and artichoke heart nuances. I find it very satisfying by a hot summer day. One of my favorite green teas. Camellia Sinensis have normally two grades, I tasted both but I’m always coming back to the cheaper one that offers a better price/quality ratio.
In comparaison to what you find in the market, this Darjeelings is fine since it is a first flush (which is generally more interesting aromas wise but way more difficult to find a good one…) but it was quite bland and rough, don’t know if it was old and/or badly preserved. The description says that it is a ‘rare’ tea? Well, it doesn’t mean it’s exceptionnal! Not bad but not exceptionnal.
