the 2014 FF pluck from my subcription box tasted average.

This review is for the 2015 FF- and soooo much better than last year’s flush.
Floral, with a buttery note. Even got hints of coriander and a greenish sweetness.

Excellent FF. Don’t oversteep!

lovely Nepali FF. Bought 300gr, on a whim, – you rarely can go wrong with Nepali teas IMHO
This one was made for my taste buds. Lemon zesty, delicate floral tea, with a bit of astringency to finish off with. Love the slight bitterness kick in the end.

Smells devine and tastes a-ma-zing.. A keeper.

Masterblend of organically grown first flush darjeelings. (2015)
Gardens that are included in this masterblend are the organic darjeeling gardens of chamling,chongtong, moondakotee, sivitar and nurbong.

This blend is a a masterblend of sheer perfection. Hints of peach & sweet almond complement a fruity, delicate golden orange cup.

Very fruity, soft and delicate FF. Delightful, and a must try, even for loyal affuendos of second flushes.
