drank First Darjeeling by Shui Tea

I didn’t think I was going to like this at first. The tiny, multi-colored leaves didn’t offer much fragrance. What was present, I would describe as a faint, sour licorice smell.

That fragrance carried over to the brewed tea. On my first sip, the thought that went through my mind was “Wow, not what I expected.” It has a light citrusy, tart flavor like a mild Earl Gray. Next, there’s a fruity-floral taste that ends in a subtle drying of the mouth.

This was really refreshing. While not “bold” in flavor, the complexity and the crisp finish make this a good cup of tea.
