My second tea from canton and my very first ‘first flush’ darjeeling so i’m a bit curious how the taste is going to compare with the tasting notes that are on the package.
The leafs are small curly brown but after the infusion they are bigger then i was expecting.
I’m brewing this for 3min with near boiling water with one heaped teaspoon. The color off the liquor turns out to be a golden light brown brew that looks very appealing to the eye.
Its a light tea no bitterness at all in my first few sips it reminds me abit off nillgiri frost (the one from jingtea i reviewed a while ago). I’m tasting the mentioned notes off dark chocolat, but the other notes are not that present in my cup. Maybe i should pick a few more leaf in my next brew, but for now i’m happy!
Because i never had a other first flush only had a few 2nd flush darjeelings its fine to say that its lighter in taste and maybe even comparable with some oolong tea’s in quality.
