This one is from SkySamurai! Thank you! A new-to-me shop! However,I can’t say I like this very much. I’m not sure if it’s the age of the tea (I know Darjeelings age VERY fast) or if the tea wasn’t fantastic to begin with, but this tea wasn’t tasting very great to me. I wasn’t loving the flavor, so couldn’t really note WHAT it tasted like, but it certainly was the opposite of the “floral” from the description. I didn’t even resteep the leaves, which is rare for me. Maybe the flavor was specific to this steep session. I have a little left in the sample to try again but then it will be even older. Maybe second flushes are definitely my thing. Basically this is just a note to say I DRANK THIS, so clearly the best tasting note ever.

I don’t generally like Darjeeling teas, but this one was actually rather pleasant. Enough so that I have water heating for a second steep, which never happens. I added milk and sugar because that’s what I do with black teas and it was pleasantly sweet with no bitterness or astringency and the muscatel notes weren’t overwhelming me like these teas usually do. I think I’ll actually keep this and drink the rest of it, rather than donating it to the free tea box at work. Kind of amazing actually, maybe I should rethink First Flush darjeelings.
Rohini Emerald Green is a First Flush Darjeeling tea, a variety I’m particularly fond of. I’m intrigued by this one, though (more so than usual!) because the leaf is different from any I’ve seen before.

First Flush Darjeelings are among my favourite black teas, as I’m sure I’ve intimated several times before. This one – from the Goomtee Estate – is apparently perfect for “strong hearted first flush lovers”. Well, we shall see.
