This is part of my first foray into loose Darjeelings. I’m not sure how to describe the tea, and I think before I give it a numerical rating I will have to drink it several times. There is a certain flavor, not unlike sorrel, that I really like. I will say that is has a naturally sweet aspect to it. I very much enjoyed it, and will continue to enjoy it this week. I have yet to give it a full “stress test”, and when I do I will write a fuller report.
