167 Tasting Notes
Risheehat is a medium bodied tea; brisker than most Chinese teas, filling the mouth with sensation, but not offputtingly puckery like many other Darjeelings. It is a lively tea, with suggestions of bright fruit flavors like pineapple and grapefruit. In Japan, First Flush Darjeelings are offered to colleagues as tokens of respect, very cool!
A blend of cooked stone fruits such as baked apriots, and the dry but slight sugariness of semisweet chocolate. It has a mellow, nutty finish of raw pecans. For a tea developed less than two decades ago, it’s developed a very large following, with good reason!
