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. The flavor of this tea seems to be more full, and perhaps this is the contrast between “front of the mouth” and, um, not front of the mouth that the tea monger mentioned. This tea’s flavor seemed more accessible somehow. At any rate I enjoyed it very well. I have yet to give it a full “stress test”, and when I do I will write a fuller report
